This report summarizes the findings from two previous projects, Engagements between African Diaspora Academics in the U.S. and Canada and African Institutions of Higher Education, and The African Dimension of Engagements between African Diaspora Academic in the U.S. and Canada and African Institutions of Higher Education. It assesses their policy implications for universities in Canada and the United States on the one hand, and in Southern, East, and West Africa on the other, as well as on donor agencies. It offers concrete proposals on how more effective strategies for engagement between African diaspora academics in Canada and the United States and African institutions of higher education might be established in the areas of faculty and student exchanges, scholarly and curricula collaborations, and the policy and institutional changes that can sustain them.
