dc.description.abstract In this blog I will try to track the broad landscape of change and will then engage with the different threads in a series of blogs, to spell out what I think the implications are for South Africa, Africa and the developing world. What I fear is that we in Africa are all too often, in our attempts to be ‘world class', chasing last year's – or rather last century's – vision. As Rhodes University Vice-Chancellor, Saleem Badat, wrote in the UNESCO World Social Science Report 2010, there is a danger for developing country universities in ‘uncritical mimicry and ‘catching up' with the so-called world class university in order to further socio-economic development'. With the current rate of change, this is a clear and present danger and we risk being stuck in last year's paradigms. en_ZA
