S2-E: South-South Cooperation in Higher Education: Migration of Indian University Lecturers to Ethiopia

Since the turn of the millennium Ethiopia has brought forward a substantial expansion of its higher education institutions. Most of the today 31 universities have been constructed from close to scratch or through upgrading of former colleges. From this emphasis on the expansion of higher education Ethiopia expects a general development impulse and the creation of a larger middle-class. However, the explosion of higher education institutions and the brain drain leave a vacuum of expertise at Ethiopian universities for the moment. Only with the help of foreign lecturers and a decrease of the qualification of much of the local university staff a minimal curriculum can be offered. Most of the lecturers from overseas, who are in the country today, are from India. As of the high demand for Indian academics several agencies have specialized themselves on the recruitment of new lecturers for Ethiopia.

By research at Ethiopian universities, Indian recruitment agencies, and at online platforms the project wants to analyze the temporary migration of Indian academics to Ethiopia and by that way contribute to the research on highly skilled migration within the global south.
