Since the beginning of the 2000s, the Bologna Process has expanded from the European Union towards the neighbouring countries and the Bologna Declaration has by now been signed by 47 countries. In addition, an increasing number of countries have shown their interest in the process by implementing most of its recommendations and tools on a voluntary basis and by making it a major policy goal at national level, without officially joining the intergovernmental process. The present report is a first attempt to describe the implementation of the Bologna Process in the countries participating in the Tempus programme, including signatory and non-signatory countries of the Bologna Declaration. The results show the attractiveness of the concepts and tools promoted by the Bologna Process and the indisputable efforts made by countries not involved in the process to come closer to the European Higher Education Area. The report is primarily targeted at all stakeholders of the Tempus programme, including current and future beneficiaries of Tempus projects. A glossary of countries is included. (Contains 14 maps and 26 footnotes.)
