CDEDU Bureau Meeting
Strasbourg, 30th June and 1st July 2022
MFHEA CEO Dr Rose Anne Cuschieri participated in the CDEDU Bureau Meeting which was held in Strasbourg on 30th June and 1st July 2022. The meeting was dedicated entirely to the new Council of Europe Education Strategy.
The Steering Committee for Education (CDEDU) oversees the Council of Europe’s programmes in the field of education and advises the Committee of Ministers on education issues. Governments of the 50 States Parties to the European Cultural Convention are represented in the Committee by senior officials from the general education and higher education sectors.
The CDEDU currently has one observer country (Israel) and 14 observer organizations. Observer organizations provide valuable input to the work of the CDEDU. They let the Committee hear the voice of other stakeholders in the field of education, be they students, teachers or (higher) education institutions. The CDEDU counts among its observers highly representative organizations. Their membership in terms of number of member organizations, the number of countries represented and the reputation and the standing of member organizations in their respective national education systems are of particular importance to the CDEDU.
