Regionalization of higher education in Africa is the least researched topic in the field of Social Science. In this regard, this book is a pioneer in terms of exploring both the historical and theoretical dynamics of regionalization processes within Africa. The interplay manifested within the book between Political Science theories and higher education concepts makes the whole analysis strong and solid. The book raises fundamental questions that focus on context and formation, operationalization and implications, and challenges and prospects of regionalization processes in Africa. In doing so, it gives both, the analytical contexts of the evolution of higher education regionalization in Africa and the current initiatives by the African Union as a whole.
