Mapping the Landscape and Dynamics of Change in the Higher Education Systems of Lusophone (PALOP) Countries in Africa

This report is the result of a project aimed at producing a baseline study on the state of higher education systems in the five Portuguese-speaking countries in Africa (PALOP): Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique and Sao Tome and Principe. The report offers a historical overview of the development of higher education in the PALOP from colonial times to the present. The main objective of the baseline study is to map the landscape and dynamics of change in the higher education systems of Lusophone African countries. It focused on describing the latest developments in terms of expansion trends, financing, governance, and policy reforms closely linked to development of higher education systems of these countries. Furthermore, the baseline study contributes knowledge that can facilitate an informed debate and the dissemination of knowledge on the role of higher education for development in Africa
