Category : occasional paper
Publish Date : 02 Apr 2015
As Rwanda aims to implement an 'East Asian model' of economic and social
development, it has welcomed the help of Korea to realize its ambitious
development plans. The Rwandan government argues that TVET enrolment
and quality must be increased and that courses need to meet strategic demand
in, for example, ICT. Based on field research and interviews, Dr Nauta will ask
why Korea is such an attractive partner for Rwanda? Do the Koreans bring
something different to the table compared to other ‘traditional’ donors? Is an
East-Asian model of development suitable for African countries and can it
really be implemented here?
