The African Academic Diaspora

Sharing intellectual resources in service of higher education

Africa’s academic diaspora can work alongside their peers from higher education institutions in their homelands to build stronger, vibrant research communities and generate new knowledge. Successful and mutually beneficial projects involving researchers and teachers on various continents show that much can be achieved through these collaborative efforts.
