Higher Education Trends in Eritrea
AbstractHigher education has been viewed as a potential instrument of national economic development. Human resource development in Eritrea is important for making the nation self-reliant thus the efforts are exerted to achieve this objective. However, Eritrea has been facing so many challenges in its way to develop its own human resources. The objective of this paper is to delve the current changes in higher education in the country. An attempt is made to highlight what may be termed as tentative issues and lessons emerging from Eritrean higher education. By way of a summing up, some random thoughts are set out to provoke analysis and debate on the subject.
