Course summary

Overview:

Leadership plays a significant role in both development and security processes and outcomes. The Leadership Studies with reference to Security & Development PhD offers the opportunity to delve into the interaction between the leadership and security-development nexus, with a focus on developing countries.

This programme, through the African Leadership Centre, provides the academic space, support and training to interrogate leadership, security and development, particularly at the conceptual level. Students can draw on academic expertise in a range of disciplines, and supervision may be provided from within the African Leadership Centre or jointly with other faculty within King's.

Graduates are well-suited for academic employment, in addition to private sector consulting organisations, NGOs and government employment in the UK, Africa and internationally.
