Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the role of the Cambodian and Ugandan states in fostering economic growth via a deliberate provision of human resources through their education systems. It is divided into two sections. The first examines education and economic development in Cambodia and Uganda after the end of their civil wars. The second focuses on the role of the state and the donor community in educational provision, examining educational policy design, resource allocation, and educational policy and resource implementation. To reap the greatest potential from an investment in education, it is important to ensure that educational provision corresponds to a country's stage of economic development, labour market, and level of technological development. Both in Cambodia and in Uganda, there is a small percentage of the labour force with technical and vocational education and training (TVET) qualification compared with other East Asian countries.

Keywords: Cambodia; civil war; education systems; educational policy; TVET; Ugandan
