Course Summary

The African Leadership Centre offers two new exciting PhD programmes: PhD Leadership Studies with reference to Security & Development, at King's College London; and a Joint PhD option PhD Leadership and Security studies, with the University of Pretoria.

Our PhD programmes offer supervision for MPhil/PhD research investigating the interaction between leadership and the security-development nexus, with a focus on developing countries. While development and security are strong fields of study in the UK, there is little in the way of dedicated academic study of the way these interact with leadership, particularly at the conceptual level. Yet there is latent acceptance of the significant role that leadership plays in both development and security processes and outcomes. This MPhil/PhD programme provides the academic space, support and training for students to interrogate these dynamics to produce knowledge that focuses on these issues. The African Leadership Centre is at the forefront of researching this nexus between Leadership, Security and Development.

Students can draw on academic expertise in a range of disciplines, and supervision may be provided from within the Institute or jointly with other faculty within the College.
