Leadership & Developing Societies

ISSN 2399-2859  

Leadership and Developing Societies is an academic peer-reviewed journal published by the African Leadership Centre. It motivates original thinking and high-quality analysis on the interaction between leadership and the security-development nexus with a global focus on the developing world. It fills an important gap by examining leadership as a distinctive aspect of security and development processes and not simply as a by-product of institution building. It provides empirically grounded analysis of the interactions between security and development; and bridges the theory and practice of leadership in developing societies.
