Bologna process to make Atlantic crossing?

Could the European Higher Education Area reach the New World? El País reports on initiatives ongoing since 2005 to extend the Bologna process’ goals of student and teacher mobility to Latin America. “The process has been slow and difficult,” notes the Madrid daily. As a former Chilean minister of education explains, the notion of a common space for Latin America’s diverse and autonomous university systems was previously "unthinkable”. The project, however, is now receiving a boost with the III Rectors Meeting organised by Universia [a project financed by Santander bank] in Guadalajara, Mexico. Its aim is to create a European-Latin American Erasmus programme, which recognises parity between, and convergence of, educational structures on both continents.
