An overview of doctoral dissertations on education development in Africa at Finnish universities

Africa

Published

This blog post gives a bird’s-eye view of the trends in doctoral dissertations on education development in Africa, completed at Finnish universities between 2000–2021. The emphasis is on the research focus of the dissertations, contextualisation of research on education development beyond faculties of education, as well as on the national and regional distribution of the research focus of the dissertations.
