The Role of Universities in the Transformation of Societies

This project aimed to increase understanding of the roles played by universities and other higher education institutions in generating social, economic and political change. It did so through an examination of the special case of countries and regions where recent changes can be claimed to have been 'transformative'. Research teams from several countries in Africa and Central and Eastern Europe contributed to the project and there were contributions from Brazil and Mexico. The project was led by CHERI and the Association of Commonwealth Universities and funded by the Ford, Rockefeller and STINT foundations and the Open Society Institute.
