43rd GLOCOL Seminar -- Viewing the Present Situation and Challenges of University Education in Eritrea, particularly in the Humanities and Social Sciences

2009-11-16 (Mon) 1:45 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.

Located in the northeast of Africa, Eritrea, which became an independent nation-state in 1993 after a 30-year war of independence from Ethiopia, is the youngest nation-state in Africa. Since independence, as a result of the mentality born of a struggle for independence and the motto of "Autonomy & Self-help," Eritrea has embarked on unique nation-building. Designing and administering a system of university education in such a country is a big challenge.

At this time, the ones responsible for higher education, the government and university personnel are visiting Japan at the invitation of JICA to discuss the possibility of establishing a relationship with a Japanese university and the challenges to education in the humanities and social sciences in Eritrea.
