The role of Universities in contributing to education for all in the Windhoek Office Cluster Countries, by Claudia Harvey, Director and UNESCO Representative to Angola, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa and Swaziland

The paper discusses the impact of globalization, especially with regard to the challenge of new information communication technologies and the brain drain in African universities. It further looks at the role of universities in Africa in contributing to the strategies of NEPAD to ensure education for all and sustainable development.
Practical examples from the Windhoek Cluster countries will be provided on how universities can collaborate with governments and civil society institutions in the promotion of education for all.
