Governance for Development in Africa Initiative

The Centre of African Studies at SOAS, University of London, is pleased to announce the extension of the Governance for Development in Africa Initiative, funded by the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, for another three years, until 2021. The focus of the project remains the same in terms of creating a dedicated environment to support the study of the socio-economic, political, and legal links between governance and development.

The continuing support of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation aims to enable the improvement of the quality of governance in African countries by building skills within an expert academic environment.

The Mo Ibrahim Foundation's initiative funds 1 PhD scholarship annually at SOAS.
