Chapters four to twelve have presented the situation with regard to the most important dividing lines between higher education sectors and higher education institutions in each of the national systems involved in the project, the Netherlands, Austria, Denmark, Germany, Finland, Flanders, France, Sweden and the United Kingdom. In this comparative analysis thematic comparisons are made. The leading themes chosen in the descriptions of each country - input, structural features, other features of the system, output and developments, recent or otherwise - have also been the guiding thread in the analysis in this chapter. Frequently it is the position of the Dutch higher education system in relation to the other systems that forms the point of departure for the thematic comparisons. At the end of the chapter the thematic elements are brought together by way of reflecting on the general position of the Dutch system in relation to the other systems.
