Tertiary education policies in seven Western European and seven Southern European countries are evaluated in two reports. In the first report by R. A. de Moor, attention is focused on France, the Federal Republic of Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. The evaluation and policy recommendations for the future concern: the integration of higher education policy with tertiary education policy; goals of education (labor force development, research, cultural and community function, personal growth); access to tertiary education; the effectiveness and efficiency of tertiary education; the student body and college programs; and educational policy and the labor market. The second report, prepared by Georges Vedel, covers tertiary education policy in Cyprus, France, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Turkey. Consideration is given to general characteristics of the Southern Europe area, goals and function of tertiary education, the place of tertiary education in the system as a whole, the components of tertiary education, the administration of tertiary education, the human factor in tertiary education, and diversification.
