The author addresses the issue of diverging national readings of the key Bologna
concepts against the backdrop of national traditions of higher education
– comparability of degrees, finality of qualifications relevant for the labour
market, implementation of the ECTS system, and mobility. The basic proposition
of the paper is that, in circumstances of semantic dissonance, the open
method of coordination (OMC) is barely effective and may create a number
of disparate effects. The OMC, having the form of free discourse and lacking
enforcement mechanisms, is likely to encourage states to insist on their traditional
concepts. On the other hand, a hard law method and guided discourse
applicable within the legal framework of the EU may serve as a corrective
force. The same counts even more in the pre-accession period if proper conditionality
mechanisms are applied.
