Higher Education Governance, Research and Policy in Africa

Higher Education Governance, Research and Policy in Africa

CALL by CODESRIA for Meaning-making Research Initiatives (MRI)

Deadline: 30 September 2017

Within the framework of the 2017-2021 Strategic Plan, CODESRIA introduces the Meaning-Making Research Initiative (MRI) as its principal tool for supporting research. Like previous tools, MRI will focus on supporting research that contributes to agendas for imagining, planning and creating African futures.

Proposals accepted in response to this special call on "Higher Education Governance, Research and Policy in Africa" will be funded by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York to CODESRIA under CODESRIA's Higher Education Policy Engagement Initiative (HEPI). HEPI seeks to contribute to the better governance of African universities with a focus on enabling them better achieve their core functions of teaching, research and policy engagement. The main tools of HEPI include research, research capacity enhancement, multi-stakeholder convenings, publications and dissemination of research findings.

HEPI forms part of CODESRIA's attempt to complement its support to individual scholars with an effort at strengthening the institutional basis of higher education institutions that produce and provide a space for the work of these scholars. Interventions under HEPI target universities in Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Mozambique and South Africa. All projects must engage cases in these countries. The scholars undertaking these projects, however, do not have to be from or be based in these countries.
