Bologna Process

Education strikes in Germany are escalating, as Die Zeit reports. Several hundred thousand students are expected to take to the streets today in more than 20 cities nationwide from Greifswald to Konstanz and Berlin to Würzburg to protest against the Bologna-Process, rising fees, and the devaluing of qualifications. Showing solidarity will be thousands of students from Austria, travelling north to join the German demonstrations. Christoph Markschies, Rector of Berlin’s Humboldt-Universität last week had his Adorno moment when he called in the police to remove striking students from an auditorium.
