The article is entitled “Vocational Education and Training for African Development: Reviewing the Past; Imagining the Future”, and is published in the Journal of Vocational Education.

One which accounts for political-economic contexts (geographic and historical), inequalities and exclusions in labor markets and VET systems, communities, and the dynamic role of individuals with the capability to dream, think and do.
