Ad Hoc Commission of the Belarusian National Platform Highlights Little Progress in the Implementation of EHEA Fundamental Academic Values
The Ad Hoc Commission of EaP CSF Belarusian National Platform prepared the Monitoring Report on the Implementation of Belarus Roadmap for Higher Education Reform for the period of June-December 2015.
The Commission analysed the progress of the implementation in the areas of the Ministry of Education’s planning, transparency, social dimension of higher education, and fundamental values. It concluded that although the Ministry of Education undertook steps to begin the Roadmap implementation on paper, in reality, a climate of intimidation persists in Belarusian universities and there is little progress in the implementation of EHEA fundamental academic values.
