An institutional comparison of higher education legislation in The Netherlands, France and Germany

The thrust of Anne van Wageningen’s PhD research project involves identifying the changing goals and rationales that underpin higher education legislation (focusing on the university as an organisation) in France, Germany and the Netherlands. A comparative analysis, based on an institutional comparative law approach, will focus on legislative differences and similarities. An important element of the comparison will be to ascertain whether different solutions are adopted regarding similar issues or the contrary.
