Higher Education Convening Tanzania: Students own governance and leadership development in democratization of universities: case studies of university of dar es salaam and mzumbe university

While there are several other stakeholders in a university system, students are considered to be one of the key stakeholders. Therefore, to attain university good governance, the students' own governance through quality leadership must be of high standards. However, despite its critical importance, the students' leadership in African universities has not been analyzed enough by many scholars. The paper discusses the students' own governance using two cases studies. One of the case studies is on students' government democratization processes at the University of Dar es Salaam and the other is on a need of embedding students' leadership development programmes at the Mzumbe University.

African civil society organizations and experts met in Kampala, Uganda, from 19-20 October 2009 on the margins of the AU Special Summit on Refugees, Returnees and Internally Displaced persons. Issues discussed included statelessness and nationality rights, which have been both a cause and consequence of forced displacement and discrimination in Africa. The session recognised that effective citizenship is a doorway to accessing other rights, including for refugees and the displaced. In this context, it was noted that the right to nationality needed to be promoted as a mechanism both to prevent and to respond to displacement on the continent.
