New Publication: Higher Education and Capacity Building in Africa
The geography and power of knowledge under changing conditions.
This book uses ‘geography of scientific knowledge’ as an analytical framework for exploring the current and future development of knowledge production in Africa.
It analyses how scientific knowledge is negotiated and contested in parallel to societal changes in general and capacity building in particular, and thus how scientific knowledge becomes local.
The book takes a cross-disciplinary approach to understand capacity building of the university sector through the lens of climate research.
