Flow of the presentation
□ State of HEIs in the south
□ A perspective on north-south collaboration (NSC)
□ Overview of Jimma University IUC Program as an
example of NSC
□ Concluding remark and way forward
□ Caveats:
 South is discussed with emphasis on Africa
 Presentation is highly influenced by actual
experience
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
Higher education (HE) in
Africa
□ Higher education is crucial for economic growth of
countries. There are many evidences that associate
economic growth with education in general and HE
in particular.
□ Higher education system is a hub of knowledge
generation, reproduction, and dissemination in a
given society (technological catch-up).
□ World bank and other development partners
downplayed this fact and neglected higher
education in 1980s and 1990s
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
Higher education (HE) in
Africa (2)
□ As in many areas of development, Africa has lagged
behind in higher education; it has the lowest enrolment.
□ Without a strong higher education system (universities,
colleges, TVETs, etc) Africa will miss out on the emerging
global knowledge based economy and cannot build a
competitive economy.
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
Benefits of higher education
□ Economic benefits (productivity, GDP, R&D,…)
□ Social and political benefits
□ Human capital and professional development
□ Knowledge generation and adaptation through research
and innovation
□ Equitable opportunity and access provision
□ Support other levels of education
□ Promote linkage to world of work
□ Promote international cooperation
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
State of science and research in Africa
(1)
□ Universities are centers of teaching, research and
community engagement; they boost productivity,
competitiveness and economic growth.
□ In Africa the state of science and research is
worrisome . The region has one of the lowest
research expenditure, research staff and scientific
outputs.
□ Few key countries produce majority of research
publications of the continent (South Africa, Nigeria,
Kenya, Egypt, Algeria, Uganda and Tunisia)
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
State of science and research in Africa
(2)
□ African research collaboration and network is also
dominated by those few countries that also
dominate the publication
□ HEIs of many countries are not part of this
established network of research collaboration
□ Few HEIs of the west (from US and Europe) have
dominated the network of research collaboration.
□ Few researches from very few countries awarded
patent from USPTO
Kora Tushune. North-South
Presentation, Hasselt University,
March 5, 2013
State of science and research in Africa
(3)
□ Compared with other countries the continent has long
way to go in scientific outputs.
□ Many countries conduct research in biological science but
few researches are conducted in science which has
implication for Sustainable development research
□ The mono-disciplinary nature of most of the researches
had compromised their utility for SD problems.
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
State of science and research in
Ethiopia
□ Ethiopia is one of African countries that produce
low scientific output in terms of publication.
□ It poorly show up in the list of countries receiving
patent from USPTO (compare this with Korea)
□ It is not integrated into major research
collaboration network in Africa
□ Although its overall scientific output is low, its
productivity is average when output per GDP is
considered.

North-south collaboration
North-south collaboration
(NSC)
□ NSC:
 has geographic and developmental connotations
 Refers to various forms of interaction between north
and south; involves two or more countries
 North-south
 North-south-south
 South-south collaboration is also a growing trend.
Definitions (Rosseel et el)
□ North-south collaboration: is “a geographical division
whereby the North represents the richer countries of
North America, Europe, Japan, Australia and New
Zealand, and the South represents the poorer majority
of countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America”
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
Typology of N-S research
collaboration
□ NSC is a generic term that can take many forms
Typology of Southern Partnership in research cooperation (Waardenburg, 1997)
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
Definitions
□ North-south-south collaboration: is “ new route of
development cooperation where aid is channeled
through institutions in third-world countries in order to
support development projects in poor countries.
□ South-south collaboration: is “a broad concept that
covers a wide range of collaborations among
developing
countries……more
specifically
to
cooperative activities between newly industrialized
Southern countries and other, less developed nations of
the South”
 SSC can be exchange of experience and good
practices, networking, capacity building and forging
partnership
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
Evolution of north south
collaboration
□ There is a longstanding tradition of academic (teaching
and research) collaboration between north and south
institutions
□ Academic collaboration evolved from predominantly
‘capacity building to equal partnerships, from social
commitment to matching interests, and from specific
needs to global strategies’ (Ad Boeren, 2013)
□ Many countries in south faced shortage humanpower
after independence; the tnorth provided training and
research capacity building
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
Evolution of north-south collaboration
□ Collaborations were funded from development
cooperation funds
□ However, the relationship between north and south
tended to be unequal due to difference in capacity and
experience
□ The north assumed the role of preceptors; little
expectation that they also learn something from the
collaboration.
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
Evolution of north south collaboration
□ Changing trends in the north:
 Expanding access to higher education with
stagnation in funding
 Change in funding formula in the North (from inputbased to output-based financing).
 Internationalization and ranking
 Selective in areas of their expertise and avoiding
low-prestige universities in the south
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
Evolution of north-south collaboration



Tendency to ‘marry upwards’ in search for quick and
certain returns:
 Universities in BRIC countries
 Well-established South African universities
Restriction of use of development cooperation funds
for academic collaboration
Lack of coherent policy that coordinate efforts of
relevant ministries in the north.
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
Evolution of north-south collaboration
□ consequences:
 Decline of social commitment as a driving force for
collaboration
 Focus on short term academic and financial benefits
 Financial constraints led Northern institutions to
‘marry upwards’ to prestigious institutions and the
upcoming BRICs universities.
 Results from collaboration with low-prestige
universities in the south are usually uncertain or and
long-term.
□ Development cooperation funds are not available for
academic
collaboration
Kora Tushune.
North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
Potential benefits of NSC
□ Well-thought NSC has a mutual benefits:
□ For North:
 Internationalization (staff and student exchange)
 Joint research and publication
 Exposure to issues and challenges of developing
world
 Play their role as global citizens (social responsibility)
 Networking
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
Potential benefits of NSC
□ South
 Transfer of knowledge, skill and technology
 Improvement in infrastructure and facilities
 Provides additional funding
 Human capacity building
 Enhanced quality of educational programs and
research
 Academic networking
 Engagement with community and enhanced role in
socio-economic development of their country
 Brain circulation
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
NSC: challenges
□ North:
 Problem of coordination
 Among countries and institutions
 Between academic collaboration and
development cooperation
 Concentration around few well established HEIs in
the south
 Going for low hanging fruits and immediate results
 There is no strong policy that encourage faculty
involvement in NSC (‘Publish or perish’ academic
environment)
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
NSC: challenges
□ South:
 Capacity problem to establish ‘partnership’
 Inadequate coordination among collaborative projects
 Lack of facilities and infrastructure
 Sustainability issues
 Brain drain (retention of qualified staff)
 Project management capacity
 Not all needs of the south can be met
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
NSC: opportunities


Global shift of attitude towards higher education
especially from the WB
Burgeoning economic growth in some of the
developing countries
BRICS countries are joining the arena
Technological advancement particularly in the areas
of ICT
EU-Africa partnership program
NSC and SS collaboration are high on the global
agenda.
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
Evolution of north-south collaboration
□ Way forward:
 Broadening the perspective of the north universities (from
short term, profit oriented and egocentric perspective to a
long-term and global)
 Investing in the future (developing countries are economic
powers of tomorrow)
 Treating south institutions as equal partners
 Engaging in mutually rewarding partnership
 Coordination of policies in the areas of development
cooperation, economic assistance , and foreign affairs
 Flexibility in use of development cooperation funds for
policy funding collaboration

Background
□ Ethiopian higher education system
 Remained very small for decades up to late
1990s
 Repaid expansion after 1997 jumping from just
two universities to 32 university within 14 years
 There is a huge increase in enrolment stretching
the limited faculty and infrastructure; yet the
participation rate is around 2%
 Currently the system has prioritized issues of
access, equity, quality, and efficiency
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
Higher education in Ethiopia (1)
□ Higher education is growing at an unprecedented rate
 The number of universities and colleges has increased
dramatically in space of the last 15 years
 Gross enrolment has also jumped from thousands to
hundred thousands relatively short time span.
 The private sector contribution to the higher education
expansion is not negligible.
□ With the rapid expansion quality has become an issue;
measures are being taken
Kora Tushune. North-South Presentation, Hasselt University, March 5, 2013
Higher education in Ethiopia (2)
□ Engineering and science have been prioritized in overall
intake (the 70/30 proportion), university and industry link
has moved to the center of the strategy.
□ The system is also aimed at achieving strategic goals of
HE including equitable distribution of institutions, gender
equality, operational efficiency, institutional autonomy,
educational quality and relevance, capacity building, and
other related issues
□ Growth of graduate programs is far behind undergraduate
programs; they are still in short supply.
