Towards a Commonwealth of Scholars

A New Vision for the Nineties

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
