Nairobi Process

A project aimed at stimulating debate around the provision of researcher support in African higher education.

The Nairobi Process is a British Academy-led initiative which focuses on the challenges of undertaking research in the social sciences and the humanities in Africa. We are taking forward this work, in collaboration with UK and African partners, through a variety of activities, such as the Africa Desk and a series of writing workshops for early career researchers.

Project outputs:

The Next Generation: Ideas and Experience in African Researcher Support (2016)

Foundations for the Future: Supporting the Early Careers of African Researchers (2011)

Frameworks for Africa-UK Research Collaboration in the Social Sciences and Humanities (2009)
