Student Participation in the CCC Member Countries in 1973.
The status of student participation in Council for Cultural Cooperation (CCC) nations is examined, based on questionnaire replies from Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Federal Republic of Germany, Finland, France, Iceland, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Turkey, and the United Kingdom. After a brief review of the situation from 1900 to 1945 and from 1945 to 1972, the current outlook is described. Consideration is given to legislation, student participation at different levels, subjects upon which students' representatives should be consulted, mode of election and powers, and the results of student participation. It is concluded that since 1968 a great change has taken place in the power structure of the institutions of higher education in most of the member countries. The goals of the student unrest in the late sixties have not been fully reached, although students have gained more influence than anticipated. The present situation shows that the absolution of the full professors has disappeared in most member countries and that the power structure is based upon a certain balance between different groups. Many of the student leaders of 1968 are now employed by the universities, and their new roles are speculative. Questionnaire samples are included. (LBH)
