There is an urgent need for a strong evidence-base to inform education policy and practice in sub-Saharan AfricaHowever, important studies undertaken by researchers in Africa are not always easy to locate, and so are not drawn upon to inform policy and practice.

To address this gap and increase the visibility and impact of African education research, the REAL Centre at the University of Cambridge is working on a project to catalogue, review and synthesise policy- and practice-relevant education research conducted by researchers and institutions in Africa. As part of this exercise, we are consulting researchers and practitioners working in the field. We would be very grateful if you could assist in ensuring the comprehensiveness of the African Education Research Bibliography by completing the survey below.
