This chapter considers the notion of knowledge mobilisation and practices associated with it in South Africa. It begins by providing an overview of the education system in South Africa, then goes on to trace the evolution of the concept of community engagement (the term for knowledge mobilisation used in South Africa) and argues that knowledge mobilisation in education suffers from conceptual disorientation and a poor quality knowledge base. The chapter concludes with suggestions about how to go forward
