The School of Governance is research led, and the change we hope to create is by bringing practitioners into a facilitated space of sharing ideas, and through case-based peer learning, build contextually relevant theory that can contribute to excellence in governance. We strive to create a culture of innovative research and support students and academics to co-create knowledge, with thought leaders across the continent who support our research agenda as fellows and visiting scholars.
