This book, the first of its kind to treat Uganda, provides a
historical analysis of the role of student voices in the
development of Uganda's higher education. It not only chronicles
incidents of student protests, but also explores and analyses their
trigger points as well as the strategies employed by the
university, the government, and the students to manage or resolve
those crises. In addition, the book highlights the role played by
national politics in shaping student political consciousness, in
particular their involvement in protests, riots and demonstrations.
The book, therefore, limits its scope to the unfolding and impact
of student crisis on the process of higher education. Byaruhanga
recommends that colleges and universities need to increase
communication with students, as well as promote student involvement
in decision and policy making, among other things, in order to
forestall future conflicts. Most distinctively, the book aims to
address the current paucity of research on student activism in
Uganda's higher education, and highlights the critical need for
research on higher education in Africa as a field of study. The
book also may serve as a base for cross-national comparative
