BRI Leadership Education Network - Debre Berhan Partner Visit
On 8th May 2019, Dr Barney Walsh from the African Leadership Centre, King's College London, visited Debre Berhan University in Ethiopia as part of an ongoing education partnership collaboration. Dr Walsh visited Zekarias Beshah, Lecturer at College of Law, and Honelign Mekonnen, Dean of Law, along with several other colleagues at Debre Berhan. The meeting was to discuss facilities and student opportunities at Debre Berhan as part of this collaborative initiative.
The "Universities Network on Global Leadership, Peace and Development: Creating Educational and Societal Transformation" brings together the ALC-King's and Peking University with eight African partner universities, with funding from the UK-China-Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) Countries Education Partnership Initiative. The project will utilise and adapt the ALC’s unique Leadership training programmes, to develop transferrable and scale-able Masters-level Global Leadership Modules through online and blended learning in collaboration with all partners. Dr Walsh's visit to Debre Berhan was the first site visit undertaken as part of the collaboration so far.
