The African Pathways Programme is the elaboration of the Continental and Global South scope of the Institute. The aim is primarily to develop an African-centred Erasmus-type programme and, further, to facilitate national curriculum innovations. The Institute will strive to create an open and dynamic process through which African scholars cooperate, collaborate and help one another reflect on the past, present and future of this continent. This will require engagement with continental bodies like CODESRIA, various governments and their education ministries, and other African higher education institutions. The programme will be complimented by a Phd Scholarship programme for non-South Africans studying in South African institutions.
