Angela Okune: This 2004 article by Damtew Teferra and Philip Altbachl focuses on the "problems of African higher education" which they see as including the challenges of funding, management, brain drain and language. The authors propose that recognition of these problems can lead to major investments by donor agencies and lending institutions. This perspective justifies and marks greater development aid investments and private corporate investments into African universities.
