Scholars in the Marketplace
Scholars in the Marketplace
The dilemmas of neo-liberal reform at Makerere University 1989-2005
Mahmood Mamdani

Scholars in the Marketplace is a case study of market-based reforms at Uganda's Makerere University. With the World Bank heralding neo-liberal reform at Makerere as the model for the transformation of higher education in Africa, it has implications for the whole continent. At the global level, the Makerere case exemplifies the fate of public universities in a market-oriented and capital-friendly era.

The Security-Development Nexus
The Security-Development Nexus
Expressions of Sovereignty and Securitization in Southern Africa
Lars Buur, Steffen Jensen, Finn Stepputat (eds)
The link between security and development has been rediscovered after 9/11 by a broad range of scholars. Focussing on southern Africa, The Security-Development Nexus shows that the much-debated linkage is by no means a recent invention. Rather, the security/development linkage has been an important element of the state policies of colonial as well as post-colonial regimes during the Cold War, and it seems to be prospering in new configurations under the present wave of democratic transitions.

Settling for Less
Student aspirations and higher education realities
Research Programme on Human Resources Development, Michael Cosser, with Jacques du Toit, Mariette Visser
This study is the second in the 'Student Choice Behaviour Project'. It traces learners who entered higher education and further education institutions and investigates the factors which influenced them. It also considers the achievability of two of the key objectives of the National Plan for Higher Education: to increase the participation rate in the system; and to shift the balance of enrolments away from the humanities and towards the study of business and commerce, and science, engineering and technology.

Sexual Abuse of Young Children in Southern Africa
Sexual Abuse of Young Children in Southern Africa
Linda Richter, Andrew Dawes, Craig Higson-Smith (eds)

In this volume, experts – including service providers, therapists, children’s advocates, and the research community – summarise and evaluate the problem of the sexual abuse of prepubescent children in southern Africa. It is the first attempt to synthesise southern African research, treatment and policy literature on the topic. The book confronts the realities of sexual abuse, and its representation in the press. It presents the main findings concerning the individual, socio-economic and sociocultural correlates of sexual abuse, and covers legal and policy responses to the problem. It also presents accounts of interventions drawn from South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.

Situational analysis of orphaned and vulnerable children in eight Zimbabwean districts
Situational analysis of orphaned and vulnerable children in eight Zimbabwean districts
Brian Chandiwana (ed)

In response to the AIDS epidemic and poverty, the Zimbabwean government and other organisations are implementing various programmes aimed at assisting orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) in the eight districts surveyed. It is clearly important to have an audit of the social services and support structures available for OVC in the eight districts and to have a clear understanding of the situation of OVC including their needs and concerns in order to have proper prioritisation, designing and evaluation of programmes that are aimed at supporting the affected children.

A situational analysis of orphans and vulnerable children in four districts of South Africa
Alicia Davids, Donald Skinner (eds)
In 2002, the Human Sciences Research Council was commissioned by the WK Kellogg Foundation to develop and implement a five-year intervention project focusing on orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) in southern Africa. In collaboration with several partner organizations, the project currently focuses on how children, families and communities in Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe are coping with the impact of HIV/AIDS. The aim of the project is to develop models of best practise so as to enhance and improve support structures for OVC in the southern African region as a whole.

Situational analysis of the socioeconomic conditions of orphans and vulnerable children in seven districts in Botswana
Edited by: GN Tsheko

This report encompasses a situational analysis which was carried out in seven research sites in Botswana: Palapye, Letlhakeng, Kanye, Mahalapye, Molepolole, Serowe and Maun. Information was collected from orphans and vulnerable children (OVC), their caregivers, community members, community-based organisations (CBOs), government officials and community leaders; as well as members of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and faith-based organisations (FBOs). The objectives of the study as outlined in this report, are to improve the living conditions of orphans and vulnerable children; to support households and families to cope with the increasing burden of care for affected and vulnerable children; to strengthen community-based support systems under which vulnerable children exist; and to build community-based systems for sustaining care and support to vulnerable children and their families.

Skills Development in Very Small and Micro Enterprises
Skills Development in Very Small and Micro Enterprises
Simon McGrath (ed)

One of the barriers to enterprises employing ten or less workers – very small and micro enterprises (VSMEs) – potentia l ly making important contributions to meeting South Africa’s targets for reducing poverty and unemployment and increasing broad-based economic empowerment is skills development. Nonetheless, in this volume, which draws together two studies for the Department of Labour, a picture of the dynamism of many such firms emerges. Considerable learning is going on amongst the highly diverse VSME population and the challenge for the state lies in how to support what is already going on.
