Abstract

Our key question is how cross-border higher education can help developing countries provide higher education for their citizens. The challenge can be summarised in four 'A's: accessibility, availability, affordability and accreditation. // First, we shall outline this challenge by recalling the Declaration of the UNESCO 1998 World Conference on Higher Education and its sequel in 2003. This will set the scene for looking at the reality of cross-border HE on three continents and in three very different developing countries: India, Jamaica and Sierra Leone. // We shall conclude that to judge from these cases, cross-border HE is today making a negligible contribution to the provision of higher education that is accessible, available and affordable in those and most other developing countries.
