In February 2005, the University of Dar es Salaam Staff Association (UDASA), in cooperation with CODESRIA,
organised a workshop to bring together the staff associations of some public and private universities in Tanzania,
in order to renew their commitment to the basic principles of the Dar es Salaam Declaration and its sister
document - the Kampala Declaration on Intellectual Freedom and Social Responsibility.

The workshop was also
aimed at re-invigorating the social commitment of African intellectuals. The papers included in this volume
reflect the depth and potentials of the debates that took place during the workshop.

The volume is published in
honour of Chachage Seithy L. Chachage, who was an active part of the workshop but unfortunately passed away
in 2006.
