In response to the publication of the Journal of Student Affairs in Africa special issue “Student Power in African Higher Education” Vol. 3(1) and the forthcoming book “Student Politics in Africa: Representation and Activism”, Prof Philip Altbach, Emeritus Director: Center for International Higher Education, Boston College has inquired if the Osphera.net research network could write brief articles (about 1000 words) on student politics in Africa for publication in “International Higher Education”.
Prof Philip Altbach is the editor of the journal, International Higher Education. The journal focuses on various themes and one of them is “Student Issues”. Reflecting on our 2015 JSAA publication issue and the book, I think this will be a suitable theme to guide our articles.
I propose that we aim for the June 2016 Issue and that would require a response to this email (with abstracts of 150 words and indication of authors) if you are interested in writing a piece for the publication. Articles can also be co-authored and cover more than one country, institution, or organization.
If you have questions, please contact taabomugume[at]gmail.com. Please respond to this email by 27 February 2016 with your abstract.
