Leaderships

Which spaces – political or otherwise – foster the emergence of developmental leadership by individuals and groups, particularly among women and young people?

A growing body of DLP research examines the nature of leadership, and the role of factors such as education, networks,  values and power relations in shaping it. Our researchers are asking whether developmental leadership can be actively supported, facilitated or encouraged. DLP research is also gathering and analysing data on national and sub-national leaders. We are investigating what motivates leaders to pursue policies that benefit the poor, and whether certain ‘types’ of leaders (for example, with particular socio-economic, educational or professional backgrounds) do so.

The Developmental Leadership Program (DLP) is an international research initiative that explores how leadership, power and political processes drive or block successful development.

DLP focuses on the crucial role of home-grown leaderships and coalitions in forging legitimate political settlements and institutions that promote developmental outcomes, such as sustainable growth, political stability and inclusive social development.
