“Can university admission tests and numerus clausus provisions make higher education more cost-efficient and more socially responsible?” It was to discuss this question that academics from every Belgian University gathered in Brussels on November 23, 2006, within the framework of the University Foundation’s Fifth Ethical Forum. The text below is an edited and expanded version of the Forum’s concluding remarks, largely inspired by the presentations that provided the Forum with its substance and the discussions to which they gave rise. A synopsis of most of the presentations is available on www.fondationuniversitaire.be/en/forum.php.
