Higher education in Africa has received favourable  political attention and  funding  support in  the  period  following independence. The rationale for state funding was questioned in the 1980s, and the higher education reforms in the 1990s centred on finding alternative ways of financing  and on improving  the managerial efficiency of universities. This focus was reflected  in the market-friendly reforms that led to the privatization of public institutions and the promotion of private institutions. These reforms resulted in substantial changes  in the governance and management of higher education.

IIEP  initiated   a  research  study   to  analyse   the  reforms   and   to understand their  effects  on  the  governance of higher  education at institutional and  national levels. Based on studies  carried  out in Ethiopia,  Ghana,  Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa, this book shows how the reforms have effected changes  in the governance and management of institutions of higher education in Africa.
