A Drafting Committee will be set up in the Spring 2019. It is supported by the BFUG Secretariat.
The Drafting Committee is composed of the Co-chairs chairing in the first semester of 2020 (Croatia, Ukraine), the two outgoing Co-chairs of that period (Finland, Turkey), the former Co-chairs (Romania, “the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”), the Vice-chair (Italy) and the BFUG Secretariat.
The Drafting Committee is entrusted with the responsibility to prepare the Draft Communiqué. A communiqué is adopted at each Ministerial Conference that outlines decisions taken by the Ministers about the central aspects of the EHEA, including its further developments and commitments by its member countries, the new applications for membership to the EHEA as well as any other main changes to the process.
The Drafting Committee co-ordinates the proposals coming from the Advisory and Working Groups. The Committee writes a draft Communiqué which is discussed by the BFUG and the Ministers at the Ministerial Conference. It is responsible for reviewing all proposed amendments.
Access to the Drafting Committee's background documents and activities reports is restricted to DC's participants.
