Is Italy's University Reform Really A Failure?
AbstractEleven years after the Bologna Declaration and nine since Italy implemented its University reform, it is not too soon to assess its results. We can now look at “the way we were” and compare the characteristics and performance of graduates under the old and the new systems. The aim is to examine the changes that have occurred over this long transition period and determine to what extent and in what areas the reform has attained the objectives of improving performance and bringing Italy closer to European standards, or whether the reform has fallen short of these goals.
