Abstract

Mirroring the onset of university student protests around the world, this article analyzes recent student protests at the Tanzanian University of Dar es Salaam and situates this activism in an historical context. While the activism is connected to cost-sharing policies and equity issues arising from country-specific higher education reforms, university student strikes in Tanzania are shown to inform broader dialogues on educational privatization and the Tanzanian university's place within discussions on 'The Global University.'
