Citizenship Law in Africa: 3rd Edition

Bronwyn Manby

Citizenship Law in Africa: 3rd Edition by Bronwyn ManbyFew African countries provide for an explicit right to a nationality. Laws and practices governing citizenship effectively leave hundreds of thousands of people in Africa without a country. These stateless Africans can neither vote nor stand for office; they cannot enrol their children in school, travel freely, or own property; they cannot work for the government; they are exposed to human rights abuses. Statelessness exacerbates and underlies tensions in many regions of the continent. Citizenship Law in Africa, a comparative study by two programs of the Open Society Foundations, describes the...

Knowledge for a Sustainable World: A Southern African?Nordic contribution

Tor Halvorsen

Knowledge for a Sustainable World: A Southern African?Nordic contribution by Tor HalvorsenThe search for answers to the issue of global sustainability has become increasingly urgent. In the context of higher education, many universities and academics are seeking new insights that can shift our dependence on ways of living that rely on the exploitation of so many and the degradation of so much of our planet. This is the vision that drives SANORD and many of the researchers and institutions within its network. Although much of the research is on a relatively small scale, the vision is steadily gaining momentum, forging dynamic collaborations and pathways to new knowledge. The contributors...

Knowledge Production and Contradictory Functions in African Higher Education

Nico Cloete

Knowledge Production and Contradictory Functions in African Higher Education by Nico CloeteThe dominant global discourse in higher education now focuses on ?world-class? universities ? inevitably located predominantly in North America, Europe and, increasingly, East Asia. The rest of the world, including Africa, is left to play ?catch-up?. But that discourse should focus rather on the tensions, even contradictions, between ?excellence? and ?engagement? with which all universities must grapple. Here the African experience has much to offer the high-participation and generously resourced systems of the so-called ?developed? world. This book offers a critical review of that experience,...

Leadership and Management: Case Studies in Training in Higher Education in Africa

Johann Mouton

Leadership and Management: Case Studies in Training in Higher Education in Africa by Johann MoutonThere has been a resurgence of interest in training programmes for higher education leaders and management (HELM) at African universities in recent times. Although there have been a few cases of evaluation studies of such programmes in Africa, a more systematic review of the lessons learnt through these programmes has not been done. This book aims to document and reflect on the learnings from intervention programmes at three African higher education councils. It is clear that university leaders face many leadership and management challenges. This is the starting point of the book.

Effectiveness of Anti-Corruption Agencies in East Africa: Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda

AfriMAP AfriMAP

Effectiveness of Anti-Corruption Agencies in East Africa: Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda by AfriMAP AfriMAPWith reportedly over USD50 billion lost annually through graft and illicit practices, combating corruption in Africa has been challenging. However, laws and policies at the continental, regional and national levels have been promulgated and enacted by African leaders. These initiatives have included the establishment of anti-corruption agencies mandated to tackle graft at national level, as well as coordinate bodies at regional and continental levels to ensure the harmonisation of normative standards and the adoption of best practices in the fight against corruption. Yet, given the disparity...

Election Management Bodies in East Africa

B. Makulilo & Eugene Ntaganda

Election Management Bodies in East Africa by B. Makulilo & Eugene NtagandaThe management of elections is increasingly generating impassioned debate in these East African nations ? Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda. The bodies that manage and conduct elections are, therefore, coming under intense citizen and stakeholder scrutiny for the manner in which they are composed, how they organise and perform their mandates, and the outcomes they achieve. The effectiveness of electoral management bodies (EMBs) has largely been influenced by the impact of political violence on election management reforms in East Africa. Even in countries where EMBs are the products...

Transformation Audit 2011. From Inequality to Inclusive Growth

Jan Hofmeyr

Transformation Audit 2011. From Inequality to Inclusive Growth by Jan HofmeyrThe 2011 Transformation Audit presents a collection of articles by South African thought leaders, which asks how the country can set goals and achieve them in a hostile global climate that threatens developmental gains that have been painstakingly achieved. For nearly two decades, South Africans have conducted exhaustive analyses of the country's challenges, embarked on bold scenario exercises and, more recently, produced forward looking strategies aimed at addressing these challenges. The most eminent of these in recent years were the Department of Economic Development's New Growth Path, and...

The Civil Society Guide to Regional Economic Communities in Africa

Morris Odhiambo & Rudy Chitiga

The Civil Society Guide to Regional Economic Communities in Africa by Morris Odhiambo & Rudy ChitigaSince 1963, when the African integration project was born, regional Economic Communities (RECs) have been an indispensable part of the continent?s deeper socioeconomic and political integration. More than half a century later, such regional institutions continue to evolve, keeping pace with an Africa that is transforming itself amid challenges and opportunities. RECs represent a huge potential to be the engines that drive the continent?s economic growth and development as well as being vehicles through which a sense of a continental community is fostered. It is critical therefore that citizens...

Doctoral Education in South Africa

Nico Cloete & Johann Mouton

Doctoral Education in South Africa by Nico Cloete & Johann MoutonWorldwide, in Africa and in South Africa, the importance of the doctorate has increased disproportionately in relation to its share of the overall graduate output over the past decade. This heightened attention has not only been concerned with the traditional role of the PhD, namely the provision of future academics; rather, it has focused on the increasingly important role that higher education ? and, particularly, high-level skills ? is perceived to play in national development and the knowledge economy. This book is unique in the area of research into doctoral studies because it draws on...

Change Management in TVET Colleges: Lessons Learnt from the Field of Practice

Andre Kraak & Andrew Paterson

Change Management in TVET Colleges: Lessons Learnt from the Field of Practice by Andre Kraak & Andrew PatersonThe Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college environment is marked by increasingly stark juxtapositions between what needs to be achieved in the post-school education sector and the increasing difficulty of current conditions. The �triple challenge� of poverty, inequality and unemployment weighs heavily on the social, political and economic fabric of the country and expectations are high that the TVET colleges can make a pivotal contribution to counter these challenges. Despite laudable increases in TVET enrolment, the education system needs to work harder to accommodate...

Boundaries of the Educational Imagination

Wayne Hugo

Boundaries of the Educational Imagination by Wayne HugoThe educational imagination is the capacity to think critically beyond our located, daily experiences of education. It breaks away from the immediacy of personal understanding by placing education within wider, deeper and longer contexts. Boundaries of the Educational Imagination develops the educational imagination by answering six questions: What happens when we expand continuously outwards from one school to all the schools of the world?; What happens if we go inside a school and explore how its material equipment has changed over the past 300 years?; What is the smallest educational unit...

The Delusion of Knowledge Transfer: The Impact of Foreign Aid Experts on Policy-making in South Africa and Tanzania

Susanne Koch & Peter Weingart

The Delusion of Knowledge Transfer: The Impact of Foreign Aid Experts on Policy-making in South Africa and Tanzania by Susanne Koch & Peter WeingartWith the rise of the �knowledge for development� paradigm, expert advice has become a prime instrument of foreign aid. At the same time, it has been object of repeated criticism: the chronic failure of �technical assistance� � a notion under which advice is commonly subsumed � has been documented in a host of studies. Nonetheless, international organisations continue to send advisors, promising to increase the �effectiveness� of expert support if their technocratic recommendations are taken up. This book reveals fundamental problems of expert advice in the context of aid that...

North-South Knowledge Networks Towards Equitable Collaboration Between: Academics, Donors and Universities

Tor Halvorsen

North-South Knowledge Networks Towards Equitable Collaboration Between: Academics, Donors and Universities by Tor HalvorsenSince the 1990s, internationalisation has become key for institutions wishing to secure funding for higher education and research. For the academic community, this strategic shift has had many consequences. Priorities have changed and been influenced by new ways of thinking about universities, and of measuring their impact in relation to each other and to their social goals. Debates are ongoing and hotly contested. In this collection, a mix of renowned academics and newer voices reflect on some of the realities of international research partnerships. They both question and highlight the agency...
