The Case of Romanian Higher Education Reforms
  • Norbert Sabic

Abstract

In 2007, the Romanian government started an ambitious higher education reform. The reform was largely inspired by European policy narratives that emphasized the importance of higher education in a future knowledge economy and more precisely the significance of higher education diversification as means to achieve better overall performance quality (Miroiu & Vlasceanu, 2012).
