Does Armenian Higher Education System Enjoy Academic and Institutional Autonomy Required by the Bologna Process?

Marta Sandoyan


The purpose of this working paper is to look at the higher education system of Armenia and find if it is institutionally autonomous thus academically free from the Bologna Process perspective. The paper shows that principles and norms on institutional autonomy are neither enforced by law nor implemented in practice. The study comes to this conclusion through careful review and examination of domestic legislation and policy on higher education in Armenia and by comparing them to the standards of the European Higher Education Area.
