short before the first action this morning...( more later..)
One of the core demands is the one for more participation of university teachers and students in the process. The legitimation of the ministers' summit for making far reaching decisions without a direct and democratic basis has been called into question as well.
The need for taking into account social aspects of mobility as well as of access has been strongly emphasized. Otherwise, whole social groups and regions of Europe and beyond the borgers of the continent would be excluded from the benefits of a European Higher Education Area, which could provide a lot of advantages for students' social situation and mobility, if the above mentioned aspects would be respected seriously.
People at the EEF are willing to bring themselves into the process, but there seems to be no possibility to be heard by the ministers.
