Research by Leading Practitioners

The Practice of Leadership was launched in 2015 as an element of the teaching and research components at the African Leadership Centre (ALC). The aim was to expose students, fellows and researchers at the ALC to the experiences of leaders in the fields of peace, security and development to strengthen the theoretical analysis of leadership as well as document lessons of these experiences for future leaders.

Out of this, the Leading Practitioners Reflection Series was established in 2015. This series is currently in its fifth year and has successfully inducted eight practitioners. As part of its inter-generational approach, the ALC has attached alumni from its Peace and Security Fellowship program as research aides to these practitioners to help collect and collate data as well as document the experiences of the practitioners for in-depth analysis.

The Leading Practitioners have two collective sessions a year in London during which they also engage the students on the MSc course through guest lectures or panel discussions. In addition, they provide mentoring sessions to the Peace and Security Fellows at the ALC.
