Unequal Partners: Teaching Resources

I created powerpoints based on my book Unequal Partners: American Foundations and Higher Education Development in Africa (Palgrave, 2016) to use in classrooms (copyright Fabrice Jaumont).

The book Unequal Partners:

  • Offers a flesh and bone approach to international development for a wide audience, including international organizations, governmental agencies and NGOs involved in international assistance
  • Provides insights into building the educational capital of developing countries
  • Analyzes the role of American philanthropy abroad and its impact on higher education in Sub-Saharan Africa
