      Action

      The Deputies are invited to take note of the Final Declaration mentioned above and to transmit it to the bodies concerned.

    The Second Informal Conference of Ministers of Education of South-East Europe was held in Strasbourg on 19 and 20 November 2001 with the following items for discussion: the brain drain in education and research; perspectives for educational reform in the region and the role of the Council of Europe and the thematic reviews on educational reforms already conducted by the OECD. At the end of the Conference, a Declaration was adopted (see CM(2002)22) with eight recommendations to the Committee of Ministers.

    One of these recommendations suggests declaring one of the forthcoming years as “European Year of Education”. At their 780th meeting (16 January 2002, item 2.1a), the Deputies, following a GR-EDS meeting on this issue, assigned ad hoc terms of reference to two Steering Committees – for Education (CD-ED) and for Higher Education and Research (CD-ESR) - to give an opinion on this recommendation by 31 March 2002. The Rapporteur Group on Education, Culture, Sport, Youth and Environment (GR-C) was invited, at the same meeting, to consider the follow-up to be given to the Second Informal Conference of Ministers of Education from South-East Europe and to report back, also in the light of the opinions to be adopted by the CD-ED and the CD-ESR.

      Financing assured: YES
