The overarching purpose of the Harmonisation of African Higher Education Quality Assurance and Accreditation Initiative (the HAQAA Initiative) is to “contribute to and support the harmonisation of higher education programmes and the creation of a revitalised, distinctive, attractive and globally competitive African higher education space, through enhanced intra-African collaboration”. Specifically, the HAQAA Initiative intends to “support the development of a harmonised quality assurance and accreditation system at institutional level, national, regional and Pan-African continental level.” The Initiative consists of various elements within an overriding Pan-African Quality Assurance and Accreditation Framework (PAQAF), which is endorsed by the African Union.
