Education policy and transnationalism in post-colonial Angola – Angola’s cooperation with Cuba and the challenges it poses

Christine Hatzky

Africa Spectrum, 2008, vol. 43, issue 2, 245-268

Abstract: The example of post-colonial Angola shows how nationalistic and revolutionary targets were linked to educational reform, and characterized by a transfer of ideology, content and method from the Cuban educational system. This article is based on interviews with witnesses to history and on documents from the archive of the Angolan Department of Education. It analyses different levels of meaning of the comprehensive Angolan reform concept and exposes the ambiguity of the transatlantic Cuban-Angolan cooperation.
