MEDIA REVIEWS

"The expression transnationally partnered university refers to collaboration between higher-education institutions located in different countries. ... I found The Transnationally Partnered University clearly written and convincingly supported by the professional literature." (R. Murray Thomas, International Review of Education, Vol. 61, 2015)

"In The Transnationally Partnered University, Koehn and Obamba examine most of the key concepts that scholars, decision makers, and leaders of higher education need to grapple with when designing research and development collaborations linking universities in Africa and elsewhere. They provide valuable partnering guidelines, explore the nature of transnational collaborations when differences (asymmetries) exist, and discuss the challenge of sustaining symmetrical relationships over time. As internationalization and transnational cooperation among universities continues to grow worldwide, this is an important book to read." - Eva Egron-Polak, Secretary General, International Association of Universities and Executive Director, International Universities Bureau

"Africa's future economic growth and stability lie mainly with its higher education systems. Well-designed partnerships are the outside element that can catalyze institution building. Koehn and Obamba have produced a rich and poignant analysis of transnational collaborative approaches to strengthening higher education systems that will serve as an excellent guide and critical resource for building and guiding Africa's future." - Montague W. Demment, Vice President for International Programs, Association of Public and Land-grant Universities
