Author:Furniss, GrahamISNI
Periodical:African Research and Documentation
Geographic terms:Africa
Great Britain
Subject:scientific cooperation
Abstract:In this Presidential Address to the African Studies Association of the United Kingdom (ASAUK), delivered on 11 September 2006, the author reflects on collaboration between the UK academic community and scholars in African universities in the pursuit of research, and the more detailed practical issues of how such collaboration does and does not work. He discusses the constraints and hindrances that get in the way, as well as the best mechanisms for making such collaboration succeed. He also outlines the broader context of developments amongst those involved in the UK, including donors and funding agencies, the British Council and the Association of Commonwealth Universities, and trends in support for higher education in Africa on the part of the international community.
