University and Society in Europe: A Prospective View.
Pange, Victor de
This report contains the notes and elements for 6 lectures that were given by Victor de Pange, head of the Division for Higher Education and Research of the Council of Europe at the University of the Pacific during January of 1971. The first lecture was devoted to student protests, using the 1968 events as a starting point. It examines whether these protests were a result of educational grievances, a criticism of society, or constructive opposition; it also attempts to explain the reasons for the protests. Chapter II deals with the response of European universities to the new situation, specifically of institutions in France, the United Kingdom, Germany, and the Scandinavian countries. This chapter also discusses a report on policy and planning for post-secondary education in Europe, the theme of the 7th Conference of European Ministers of Education to be held in Brussels in May 1971. The report covers policy objectives and constraints, system objectives and social goals, structural and institutional changes, financial and economic aspects, organization for learning, and the government of post-secondary education. Chapter III deals with "permanent education" and discusses 3 essays: "Permanent Education - An Agent of Change," by H. Janne; "A Model for Recurrent Education," by O. Palme; and "Towards the Construction of a System of Permanent Education," by J. Capelle. (AF)
