Globalisation and Funding of Higher Education in Africa

Nkechi J Okoli, Benjamin Nyewusira


The study focuses on the effects of the forces of globalisation on the funding of higher education in Africa. It posits that since the 1960s the human capitalist theory promoted the funding of education especially at the tertiary level both in the developed and developing countries. However at the turn of the 21st century, the forces of globalisation have brought to bear on the nation states (destabilised nation states) especially in Africa that educational policies have been redefined or reframed in such a manner that has negatively affected education. The inequalities created by the scapes and rifts of globalisation are glaring and damaging. The study recommends a rethinking of globalisation in such a way as to carry along every group, especially African nations.
