The Senegalese scientific community: africanization, dependence and crisis

Gaillard, Jacques

Abstract:
In this chapter Gaillard firstly provides an historical account of the Senegalese scientific community.  This discussion encompasses the development of the University of Dakar with figures illustrating the student enrolment statistics as well as the africanization of teaching staff at the institution.  This is followed by a study of the institutionalization of the Senegalese scientific research activities. The study limits itself to domestic and foreign institutions that comprise the large  majority of active researchers in Senegal.  The author seeks to define the specificities of the Senegalese community and provides an analysis of the problems of its legitimation and operation.  Recommendations are given in conclusion to the chapter.
