Decolonisation and Transformation of Higher Education in South Africa: The Case of Rhodes University

23 November
London

Professor Robert van Niekerk from Rhodes University will deliver this Sussex Development Lecture on Decolonisation and Transformation of Higher Education in South Africa.

Robert's area of research is the institutional history, ideologies and understandings of social policy and social change in South Africa. He also has an interest in social policy in a post-apartheid South Africa – particularly polices aimed at overcoming inequality and developing social rights of citizenship and the ‘good society’, and looking at the factors that account for success and failure in policy implementation.

Lecture will be live on Facebook.
