The challenges and prospects for decentralization of higher education in Afghanistan

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Decentralization is one of the most popular “traveling reforms” in the education sector and now it is being discussed for higher education in many settings. The potential benefits of decentralization are well documented. Less well appreciated perhaps are the difficulties of implementing effective decentralization in low-resource contexts. In the context of Afghanistan’s higher education sector, some of the many challenges decentralization must overcome are low institutional and human resource capacity, social and cultural constraints, and strong national norms and values. Particularly challenging are the issues of financing of higher education and the capability of managing financing at the institutional level. Decentralization could bring more reliable and flexible admissions policies provide students and faculty with greater access to distance education, and opportunities for partnerships with international universities. Universities in Afghanistan vary greatly in the extent to which they are currently capable of managing decentralization.

The presenter is a faculty member at Herat University in Afghanistan, a relatively well-developed provincial institution. He will discuss the challenges and prospects of decentralization from the perspective of his own university.
