HAQAA2 Final Conference
The Harmonisation of African Higher Education Quality Assurance and Accreditation (HAQAA2) Initiative has been an ambitious endeavor to promote African continental harmonization in quality assurance, as well as African regional integration in higher education more generally, in line with the ambitions of the ‘PAQAF’ framework of the African Union and the Continental Education Strategy for Africa (CESA). A continuance of HAQAA1, the initiative has been adjusted and re-positioned over the past 3 years, responding and adapting to the Covid crisis and tackling new, important policy themes where required. The initiative has been structured around three core action areas: Capacity building, training and support for Continental Education Strategy for Africa – CESA (the policy component). It has engaged diverse stakeholders from the higher education sector at institutional, country and regional level. The final HAQAA2 event is a showcase event, tying together all of these elements.
