ZOiS report on Higher Education in Abkhazia, Transdniestria and Northern Cyprus

06 May 2020

The Centre for East European and International studies (ZOiS) published a report entitled "Higher Education in Europe’s Unrecognized Territories: Challenges and Opportunities", co-authored by Thomas de Waal and Sabine von Löwis.

The report looks in detail at the universities in Abkhazia, Transdniestria and Northern Cyprus and the issues around engagement in higher education in general. The three examples are very different, with Transdniestria showing some progress and Northern Cyprus taking a very different route of unregulated commercialisation of the higher education sector. However, many of the problems are shared by the three cases, especially lack of academic exchange and access to programs such as Erasmus+.
