Mobility of people and resources in higher education of today has a distinct role to develop intercultural dialog within academia, to discuss cultural values and confront the worldviews. These processes take place mostly at the level of individuals and has a huge impact on one's value system. The aim of the paper is to evaluate the role of the Erasmus Programme in enhancing intercultural dialogue. The Erasmus Programme, celebrating in 2007 twenty years of its existence, is currently the flagship of European integration. The programme is open to the 27 Member States of the European Union, the three EEA countries (Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) and to Turkey (as candidate country). Its main objective is to improve the quality and increase the volume of student and teaching staff mobility throughout Europe. Already more than 1.500.000 of Erasmus Students have experienced “being an Erasmus”.
