RESEARCH FOR CULT COMMITTEE – Recognition of qualifications for educational and professional purposes: the impact of Brexit

26-11-2018

The United Kingdom (UK) will leave the European Union next 29 March 2019. The potential impact of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union on the recognition of qualifications depends on the nature of the qualifications as different regulatory regimes apply to academic as against professional qualifications. In the case of academic qualifications, this issue falls within national competence, although supporting policies have been implemented at European level. Brexit should not have substantial ...

The United Kingdom (UK) will leave the European Union next 29 March 2019. The potential impact of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union on the recognition of qualifications depends on the nature of the qualifications as different regulatory regimes apply to academic as against professional qualifications. In the case of academic qualifications, this issue falls within national competence, although supporting policies have been implemented at European level. Brexit should not have substantial consequences since those policies are intergovernmental (e.g. Bologna Process), implemented on a voluntary basis (e.g. European Qualifications Framework, Europass) or open to third countries (e.g. Erasmus+). By contrast, the question of professional qualifications is closely related to the single market and to the free movement of workers, services and establishment. Hence, a number of European directives govern the field of regulated professions. If the UK becomes a third country from 30 March 2019 or at the end of the transition period provided for in the “Draft Withdrawal Agreement”, this legislation will no longer apply either to EU citizens seeking recognition of their qualifications in the UK or to UK citizens seeking recognition of their qualifications in the European Union.

Språkpolitiken

01-09-2017

Som en del av sina insatser för att främja rörlighet och förståelse mellan kulturer har EU utsett språkinlärning till en viktig prioritering, och unionen ger bidrag till ett antal program och projekt på detta område. Flerspråkigheten ses av EU som en viktig faktor för den europeiska konkurrenskraften. Ett av målen för EU:s språkpolitik är därför att varje unionsmedborgare utöver sitt modersmål bör behärska ytterligare två språk.

In the joint communication “Towards an EU strategy for international cultural relations” from 8 June 2016, the Commission and the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy have drawn up a strategy for the EU’s international cultural relations, departing from “showcasing” and working towards a cooperative peer-to-peer learning approach. The Committee on Culture and Education (CULT) and the Committee on Foreign Affairs (AFET) have decided to draw up an own-initiative report on the strategy. CULT strongly advocated the development of this strategy throughout the last few years, as evidenced by a relevant EP resolution and a preparatory action. This briefing gives an overview of the policy developments that led to the new strategy, summarises the strategy itself and points out crucial elements and challenges that could be addressed in the own-initiative report.

Research for CULT Committee - Culture and Education in the CETA

19-12-2016

This paper assesses the treatment of education and culture in the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA). The CETA marked (for the EU) significant changes in negotiating modalities in the fields of services and investment, involving a shift in the manner in which the Parties undertake negotiated market opening commitments under the Treaty (from a GATS-type hybrid list to a negative list approach). Notwithstanding such changes, both Canada and the European Union have secured ...

This paper assesses the treatment of education and culture in the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA). The CETA marked (for the EU) significant changes in negotiating modalities in the fields of services and investment, involving a shift in the manner in which the Parties undertake negotiated market opening commitments under the Treaty (from a GATS-type hybrid list to a negative list approach). Notwithstanding such changes, both Canada and the European Union have secured under the CETA negotiated outcomes fully aligned to – and wholly consistent with - those achieved by both Parties in their preceding trade and investment agreements at the bilateral, regional or multilateral levels. The CETA marked no change to the long-held policy of both Parties to retain full policy immunity by eschewing substantive disciplines and market opening commitments in matters of culture and publicly-funded education services.
