23 SES 11 C, Globalising Europe Through Education: Knowledge, Power and the New Imperialism?
This paper addresses three objectives. Firstly, that the Bologna process was to increase the flow of talented non European students toward European universities. However, Africa was not the first target of this policy because the link that Europe to these former colonised countries guaranteed the transfer of the best African students in European universities. Secondly, the assumption was Bologna would modify relationships within African universities, in turn creating greater interdependence between them. In a favorable hypothesis, this interdependaence would sustain reflection and common decisions in the curricula and qualifications, and thus quality in African universities. Thirdly, the evolution of the content and modalities of the dialogue engaged between Europe and Africa between 1998 and 2009. In the first stage, the imposition of European Bologna reforms to African prevailed. From 2007, Europe changed its attitude and adopted the "Africa-EU joint strategy". This was the beginning of the discussion to engage a Tuning in Africa (based on the Tuning project installed by Europe in Latin America and United States, etc). We consider whether this development represents an important stage in the creation of a world higher education area based on the convergence of competence attached to each disciplinary curriculum.
