Abstract:This book brings together the work of eighteen scholars working on questions of higher education development, governance, and student politics in Africa, under the umbrella of the project 'Student representation in higher education governance in Africa'. The purpose of this project is to map out and compare recent changes in the African higher education landscape and the different models of how students are organised. In August 2014, the group of authors and editors met for a three-day symposium and workshop in Cape Town. Contributions include theoretical work, overview chapters on historical developments in student politics in Africa, as well as single-university case studies and comparative studies. In addition, there are several in-depth studies on national student organisations.
