Thematic Peer Group B

In September 2018, the BFUG formally established this Thematic Peer Group B on the Lisbon Recognition Convention (TPG B on LRC)  more specifically on Key Commitment 2 (national legislation and procedures compliant with the Lisbon Recognition Convention) based on the interests and needs indicated by the BFUG members and Consultative members in a survey conducted during the summer of 2018.

Specific thematic indications include topics such as:

  • establishing the legal framework to allow the implementation of the LRC,
  • establishing the distribution of work and responsibilities among the competent institutions that have the right knowledge and capacity to carry out recognition procedures,
  • achieving automatic recognition,
  • recognition of alternative pathways,
  • qualifications held by refugees,
  • optimising the potential of digital technology for the recognition agenda and the Diploma Supplement.
