Abeli, Wilbard; Pillay, Pundy; FitzGerald, Patrick; Hodgson, Spencer; Ishengoma, John; Mgaya, Yunus; Lokina, Razack

To what extent is this trend evident in Southern African countries? What are the trends in higher education investment and what are the frameworks guiding such investments? What innovations and practices are emerging in higher education funding aimed at meeting the growing demand in the sector, while mediating competing claims for scarce financial resources?
