What we do
The ALC places great value on the core values that underpin effective leadership, and the research undertaken at the Centre is global in its breadth and impact. Although not exclusively African in its coverage or it’s student intake, the ALC is nevertheless committed to developing future generations of African leaders - women and men - alongside those from across the world. It trains and mentors young people with the potential to lead and enable innovative change in their communities and in their regions; to that end, it builds capacity not just of the individuals, but of the communities, institutions and organisations in which they live and work. It has a particularly strong network of successful alumni around the world who continue to actively participate and support its initiatives
ALC’s peace, security and development focussed programmes teach specific leadership and transformational skills, and engage students in practical analysis of various institutional approaches to security and development. We hope and believe that the students trained on our programmes will participate in institutional, national and regional networks in order to become the next generation of academics and decision-makers committed to engendering peace and development in society.
