This paper provides a multidimensional perspective on higher education participation in Europe and the results of social inclusion policies introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon in the year 2000. In addition to taking into account gender, age, economic status, areas of expertise and educational investment, the paper utilizes an intersectional perspective to identify specific needs for the design and improvement of policies and other measures to create a more inclusive higher educational system for underrepresented groups.
