Since the beginning of the Bologna Process the National Unions of Students in Europe (ESIB) an then the European Students’ Union (ESU) has played a significant role in the conception and implementation of the Bologna Process goals.
In 2001, ESIB asserts in the Policy Paper "Student participation in the European Higher Education area" the necessity of involving students representatives as equal partners:

As co-operation on educational issues keeps increasing, so should the students’ influence on the process.[...] Student involvement is a key factor for the development of a diverse, high quality and democratic Higher Education.

In 2003, ESIB Policy Paper "New Challenges for a wider perspective on the future of the EHEA" focuses on the new challenges that HE is facing in the creation of a wider common European Higher Education Area. It is primarily concerned with promoting the student opinion of and within this process. It considers the present situation and offers a common student vision on the continuation of the process of creating this European Higher Education Area.
