Next Generation Social Sciences in Africa

Supporting the next generation of African researchers working on peace, security and development issues

The Next Generation Social Sciences program, launched in 2011, responds to an emerging dilemma within higher education in the global South caused by the extraordinary emphasis on increasing undergraduate enrollment without proportionate investment in faculty development. The program currently operates to strengthen tertiary education in Africa through a series of institutional and individual interventions, creating a pipeline for the development of faculty and research communities working on peace, security, and development topics. Currently the program operates in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda. To learn more about the program model please visit our Next Generation Social Sciences site.
