 The revision process of the Hellenic Constitution has, since the last parliamentary elections of September 2007, entered its second - and final - stage. This, final, stage has to be completed by the end of the first parliamentary session, before the sum­mer of 2008. Among the various constitutional Articles and clauses that the pre­vious parliamentary synthesis has voted for amendment, and by far the most controversial, is the revision of Article 16, the Article on Higher Education. This con­tribution aims at exploring the parliamentary debate on the revision of Art. 16 of the Hellenic Constitution in the light of, on the one hand, the policy objectives, priorities and targets set by the EU and, on the other, domestic political frictions, exhibited especially during the discussion of Law 3549/2007 and the ensuing tur­moil it provoked.
