Higher Education and Development in Africa

Uetela P. ‘Higher Education and Development in Africa’, Palgrave Macmillan 2017. ISBN 978-3-319-31141-8.

This book critically addresses concepts and analyses related to the higher education and development nexus in Africa. The study explores the expansion of higher education in Africa and its impact on development, modernization and the economy to situate Africa within global debates on higher education governance and investment. Using concrete indicators from economic, social and political domains, the book demystifies dominant narratives which giant institutions have applied to disunite the relationship between universities and growth on the continent.
