    Resources, relevance and impact – key challenges for African universities: how to strengthen research and higher education in Africa2020Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Global and regional goals, such as Agenda 2030 and the African Union's Continental Education Strategy for Africa, foreground higher education as an engine for development and job creation. Yet, many African universities perform weakly in international comparison. This policy note looks at the challenges in strengthening the freedom, relevance and impact of research and higher education in Africa.

    Recommendations for policymakers:

    • Minimise inequality
    • Improve data collection
    • Train more lecturers
    • Benchmarking and networking
    • Build equitable relationships
    • Safeguard academic freedom

    Visions of urban modernity and the shrinking of public space: challenges for street work in African cities2020Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Making cities inclusive is one of the goals of Agenda 2030, and access to publicspaces is identified as an important sub-goal. However, in urban Africa, access by street vendors and other marginalised groups to public spaces seems to be on the decline. This policy note discusses why this is so, what processes lie behind the decline and what the effects are for groups that depend on public space for survival.

    Shifting the narrative on African migration: the numbers, the root causes, the alternatives – get them right!2020Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall message of this policy note is that negative public opinion in Europe is a major obstacle to holistic and sustainable policies relating to African migration. It argues for a shift in wording and perspective away from politicised opinions about immigration, or misplaced ideas of humanitarian responsibilities, towards a more constructive and pragmatic focus on labour migration management.
