The European Commission perspective on higher education in Sub-Saharan Africa

Costa, Carlos

Abstract:
The author poses two questions with regards to higher education and development.  Firstly, what can be done to increase the quality of the higher education system and attune it to the needs of both developing and developed countries?  What are the obstacles for increasing the quality and accessibility of the higher education system?  The author argues that an holistic approach is needed.  The paper examines the approach supported by the European Commission to the development of higher education and the problem accompanying this stance.  Costa also mentions the potential that ICT has for higher education development and concludes with recommendations made for the funding of higher education.
