ALC Alumnus and current PhD student, Ifesinachi (Ife) Okafor presented her policy idea - 'Fighting cutting and stitching in the girl child, by attacking the myths' - in front of judges and live audience as part of Kings College 'Policy Idol' competition that took place on 18th March 2015.

    

It is with great pleasure that I announce that ALC founder Oluwafunmilayo Olonisakin and ALC Trustee Charles Abiodun Alao, were conferred their Professorships. Professors Olonisakin and Alao received their promotions last week, via official communication from the Principal of King’s College London. We at the ALC are happy to celebrate this logical and long overdue outcome. Anyone who has interacted with, has been mentored by or in any way knows the intellectual and policy contributions of Professors Olonisakin and Alao, also knows that they merit this promotion and deserve their moment in the limelight. We join their friends, colleagues, students and mentees in celebrating this achievement, and in celebrating our new professors. 

The African Leadership Centre in collaboration with Social Science Research Council, held a conference at Wilton Park from 23rd to 25th February 2015. Bringing together over 40 academics and policy practitioners from around the world, the conference focused on peacebuilding in Africa. It aimed, among other things, to examine the evolving challenges in the field, responses and what new thinking is emanating from the terrain. There were participants from core institutions operating in the peacebuilding terrain in Africa, including academics from universities and research centres to policy practitioners from the African Union, East African Community and the UN. The discussion was rich, touching on conceptual questions around definition of peacebuilding to empirical ones around the transformations in the terrain and how they are challenging old approaches to peacebuilding. The conference discussed innovations in African peacebuilding and alternative perspectives evident in peacebuilding interventions in Africa.
