Towards a Commonwealth of Scholars

A New Vision for the Nineties

image of Towards a Commonwealth of Scholars
Within the universities of the Commonwealth there has always been a sense of a common educational and research tradition.

A workshop was held in Singapore in April 1992 to outline the strategies and mechanisms for developing, maintaining and expanding student flows into the universities and polytechnics of the Commonwealth South and for the extension of South-South exchange. Material from the Singapore papers is here brought together in a readable form, providing:

• An historical background to the new initiatives

• A thorough analysis of the major policy issues

• A set of case studies




In April 1992, a group of university academics and administrators from all parts of the Commonwealth met in Singapore to consider how best to promote the flow of students into the universities of developing countries from other Commonwealth universities, against the grain of a long history of outward movement. It was a notably well-prepared meeting, with papers specially commissioned from ten countries to describe and analyse the current situation and the obstacles to improvement. The meeting was charged with the task of proposing ways of overcoming those obstacles.
