Quand les doyens et les enseignants lâchent leurs étudiants. Une nouvelle lecture des réformes à l'Université de Makerere en Ouganda (1986-2000)

Abstract : This article discusses policy processes in a state depending on aid. Relying on the Ugandan experience (1986-2000) and the reforms undertaken at the University of Makerere, we question the capacity of academic stakeholders to mobilise and to get engaged in public policy configurations. Whereas in the North, the participation of civil society actors seems to be ensured by frameworks promoting participatory intervention, this mode of action is less evident in African and sometimes authoritarian contexts, where public action appears be oriented by international experts. However, we argue that even in a state relying on international aid and fluctuating between democratic and authoritarian experiences, public action remains a dynamic process of coproduction, which informs about the reconfiguration of the academic field in Uganda. Stemming from a PhD thesis in political science, this article bases on secondary data, research at the archives of the University of Makerere, as well as on semi-structures retrospective interviews.
