Term Definition
PROFESSIONAL RECOGNITION

Refers to the right to practice and the professional status accorded to a holder of a qualification. Owing to different regulations for the recognition of degrees or titles, a differentiation of two groups should be made: de Jure Professional Recognition applies to the right to work in a specific country in a legally regulated profession (e.g., as a medical doctor) while de Facto Professional Recognition refers to situations of unregulated professional recognition, such as situations in which no national legal authorization exists or is required.
