Cost sharing crisis in Nigerian universities: policy lessons from an empirical study

Obasi, Issac; Eboh, Eric

Abstract:
The introduction to this research report briefly outlines the historical events culminating in the funding crisis in Nigerian Universities as well as the cost sharing dilemma such universities have been experiencing.  The authors discuss government funding as a source of higher education income and provides a table showing the degree to which developing countries depend on such funding. Arguments are put forward that support public as well as private subsidisation of higher education.  A global overview of cost sharing policies and strategies is given and the methodological framework provided explains how the data for this study had been gathered.  The report concludes with a summary of the major findings of the study and its policy implications.
