Harmonization of higher education in Africa: a strategy for the African Union

COMEDAF, Bureau of the Conference of Ministers of Education of the African Union

Abstract:
The African Union (AU) has a vision for integration, peace, prosperity and peerage in the global community.  It regards education as a key instrument in achieving its vision of developing quality human resources and contributing towards increased mobility of Africans around the continent. The AU Commission has embarked on a process of developing a framework for harmonization of Higher Education Programmes in Africa. The rationale for this is based on the belief that such an initiative will help to foster cooperation in information exchange, harmonization of procedures and policies, attainment of comparability among qualifications, and possibly the standardization of curricula, so as to facilitate professional mobility for both employment and further study.  A research report on harmonization in higher education in Africa was prepared and provides the context for this Strategy document.  This document discusses the context, rationale, purposes, goals and principles of harmonization.  It also provides a framework for the AU HEP harmonization strategy.
