Today, after a decade of a concerted policy, national systems look much more convergent but new questions and dilemmas are emerging: about its nature and quality, about real impact of recent reforms in different countries as well as about its future.

The authors try in particular to upfront issues of convergence and diversity, of equity and of the relationship of centres and peripheries in higher education
