Recent Trends in Quality Assurance
Amaral, Alberto; Rosa, Maria Joao
Quality in Higher Education, v16 n1 p59-61 Apr 2010
In this paper we present a brief description of the evolution of quality assurance in Europe, paying particular attention to its relationship to the rising loss of trust in higher education institutions. We finalise by analysing the role of the European Commission in the setting up of new quality assurance mechanisms that tend to promote accreditation and stratification rather than quality enhancement.
