The University of Botswana and the University of Tromso Collaborative Program: Its Relevance to Minority Education and San Youth Capacity-Building
Bolaane, Maitseo; Saugestad, Sidsel
Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education, v5 n2 p119-125 2011
This article highlights a multidisciplinary collaborative program between the University of Botswana and the University of Tromso, Norway, focusing on San research and capacity-building. After 12 years of operation, this program led, in April 2010, to the creation of a new "Research Center for San Studies" at the University of Botswana. This research center will build on and expand the efforts of the initial collaborative program, which include research and teaching on the cultural, historical, social, economic, and legal situation of the San of southern Africa; capacity-building of San students and researchers; and advocacy. This article provides a brief retrospective of the UBTromso program, with emphasis on the political context of San studies in Botswana and the challenges facing San youth in education systems.
