Aga Khan University (AKU) is organising a two-day conference on Higher Education in Developing Countries: With a Focus on Muslim Contexts. The conference will be held at The Congress Centre, 28 Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3LS.
In recent years, higher education has started to regain its importance in academic and policy discussions both in developed and developing countries, including those with substantial Muslim populations. A series of reports have been written in the last decade on the state of higher education in developing countries. A study of these reports shows that there is a broad similarity among the issues faced by higher education in these countries. With differing intensities the issues revolve around vision, mission, openness and independence, funding, human resources, governance, teaching materials and approaches and research.
