n Indilinga African Journal of Indigenous Knowledge Systems - Community-based-research in Africa : implications for education

Volume 5, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1683-0296



The article explores the roots of Community-Based-Research (CBR) in Africa. The main questions are: How to access the knowledge produced and circulated within communities and make them subject of teaching in schools? Can we derive methodological questions that could be related specifically to the African context from the CBR as it is being implemented? The exposition of these questions is illustrated with examples focused on education. Mozambique is used as an example to discuss the possibility of merging local and universal knowledge through community based research which informs curricula changes in primary schools.
