This book explores the visions underlying the attempts to reform the European University as well as two European integration processes. It presents a framework for analyzing ongoing modernization reforms and reform debates that take place at various governance levels and a long-term research agenda. It convincingly argues why the knowledge basis under the current University reforms in Europe should be considerably strengthened.
