Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the various articles of the convention on the recognition of studies, diplomas and degrees concerning higher education in the states belonging to the Europe region adopted by an International Conference of States convened by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), meeting in Paris, held on December 1979. The recognition by all the Contracting States of studies, certificates, diplomas and degrees obtained in any one of them is intended to develop the international mobility of persons and the exchange of ideas, knowledge and scientific and technological experience, and that it would be desirable to accept foreign students into establishments of higher education on the understanding that recognition of their studies or diplomas shall at no time confer on them greater rights than those enjoyed by national students.
