Abstract

This article belongs to a limited body of scholarship concerning inclusion in the Bologna Process. The Bologna Process aims to create the European Higher Education Area with comparable higher education structures within the European Higher Education Area member states. Unlike previous research that focuses on the implementation of one of the Bologna Process inclusion-related action lines (i.e., lifelong learning, student-centred education and social dimension), this article adopts a broader lens, and investigates the evolution of the meaning of 'inclusion' in the key international Bologna Process policy documents. This article argues that there is still a lack of clarity around the meaning of 'inclusion' in the Bologna Process, and the list of underprivileged groups that the Bologna Process aims to include in higher education, is absent. This article calls for an urgent review of this problem at the European Higher Education Area ministerial conference scheduled for 2020 which will set the agenda for post-2020 work in the European Higher Education Area.
