(Working papers) African Academics in Germany Revitalising African Universities by George Mutalemwa, CODESRIA, Dakar, 2019, ISBN: 978-2-86978-855-8
African Academics in Germany: Revitalising African Universities is a thought-provoking work. It challenges African scholars to re-examine their contribution to their motherland. It invites German universities and scholarship providers to assess the relevance of the education offered towards the transformation of African higher learning institutions. The book provides a method of engaging African academics and the diaspora in the revitalisation of higher education. The book introduces a university revitalisation theory which explains the role of internationalisation in socio-economic, cultural, technological and political development.
