African Leadership Centre
Global Institutes, King's College London
The ALC is a Pan African Centre of Excellence with a focus on high quality academic and policy-relevant research, academic postgraduate programmes and professional training focused on peace, security and development as it relates to Africa and the world. At the heart of its work is the training of a new generation of African leaders through a series of Fellowship programmes and the provision of a forum for exploring a transformative discourse on peace, security and development that is grounded in African realities. The ALC is anchored on the core values of: the pursuit of excellence; African-led ideas and processes of change; respect for diversity in terms of gender, region, class and beliefs; independent thinking; recognition of youth agency; and integrity. It was founded by King’s College London and is based at permanent offices in Nairobi and the Global Institutes, King’s College London.
