Long abstract:
Europe has a long and partly troubled history of supporting/influencing Africa's knowledge sector. Not only individual 'donor' countries (including the Netherlands, but clearly also the former colonial powers, and ever more Germany) but also the EU as a whole have designed and implemented many knowledge support programmes. What are the current plans, and how does Europe cope with the current anxieties in Africa's knowledge landscape?
