Tumubweinee, Philippa; Luescher, Thierry M. – Journal of Student Affairs in Africa, 2019
In this article we argue for a socio-political conception of space in order to show how conceptualisations of space can provide conceptual tools in the reframing of policy and designing of policy interventions in pursuit of higher education transformation goals.
