Insbesondere das Ende des Austauschprogramms Erasmus für Studierende bedauert die Landesregierung. «Es ist ein Anachronismus, wenn jungen Menschen in einer Zeit, in der die Welt zusammenwächst, beim internationalen Austausch Steine in den Weg gelegt werden», sagte Europaministerin Birgit Honé (SPD) am Sonntag.
