Attaining a Goal: The Erasmus Decision, 1985–87

  • Anne Corbett


If there was one event that greatly enhanced the chances of cooperation in higher education becoming enshrined in European Community (EC) law, it was the installation in January 1985 of a new Commission, under the presidency of the dynamic French politician, Jacques Delors. But that event was itself the culmination of many others. This chapter recounts the process by which broad support for a full EC decision on higher education was gained, and how the issue was refined by obstacles and events, expected and unexpected.
