The social dimension has been one of the goals of the Bologna Process since 2001.

The Bologna Process, launched with the Bologna Declaration of 1999, is one of the main voluntary processes at the European level to create the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). Today, the Bologna Process is implemented in 47 states, which now define the EHEA.

Members of the Bologna Process are the 47 signatory countries, together with the European Commission, and the consultative members, namely the Council of Europe, UNESCO, EUA, ESU, EURASHE, ENQA, Education International and BUSINESSEUROPE.

The Communiqués of the Bologna Process are the official documents are adopted by ministers of education that define the objectives and priorities of the Bologna Process and assess the progress that has made been since the previous Ministerial Conference.

The Communiqués, which include the social dimension of from the Prague Communiqué of 2001, can be found under communiquès.
