Abstract

This report provides a synthesised overview of the deliberations of the Project Workshop held in Johannesburg, South Africa from 22 to 24 May 2017 for the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Newton/National Research Foundation (NRF) funded project, Higher Education, Inequality and the Public Good in four African countries: Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa. The Workshop had two main purposes. As the first face-to-face meeting of the project since its start-up in December 2016, it was designed to provide an opportunity for in-depth planning by the full, cross-country research team, particularly towards the refinement of the research steps and instruments, as well as the further development of the first set of research outputs. In addition, the Workshop was structured to include on the second day a Stakeholder Workshop. This day was aimed at bringing together key higher education stakeholders from the participating countries to engage with them around the conceptual and contextual framing of the project and to strengthen the research design. The three days were therefore designed to enable more in-depth planning for going forward with the project and to begin to facilitate stakeholder involvement in the research. This report is aimed at providing an overview of the proceedings over the three days and, most importantly, drawing out the emerging issues from the Workshop for the project. It is therefore intended as both a record of key milestones within the project process and as a tool to assist in its further development and implementation. It has been organised into two main sections. The first discusses important themes that emerged out of the planning process and stakeholder engagement that are important for the project going forward, particularly towards deepening the conceptual thinking around the project, refining its research design and strengthening the planned research outputs. Discussion on and agreements reached on the next steps that need to be taken in the project are outlined in the second section. Attached to the report are also a number of appendices related to the workshop process and its outcomes.
