    In the sphere of higher education policy, the legal basis for Community intervention tends to be weak (Gornitzka, Chapter 4). Education has always been considered an area of national sensitivity (Gornitzka, Chapter 4) and that for a number of reasons. These range from the obligation of the state to provide compulsory education, “the role of educational institutions as nationally embedded socialising institutions” (Gornitzka, Chapter 4). They include responsibility for central coordination of curricular content in higher education programmes in those countries where legal homogeneity still prevails (Gornitzka et al. 2001).
