GDAI - Residential Schools

The annual residential school on governance and development is part of the Governance for Development in Africa programme that we at SOAS run in collaboration with the Mo Ibrahim Foundation.

This initiative aims to contribute to and stimulate debate on governance, development, and the relationship between them. Participants from a range of African countries, and representative of the academic, civil society and government sectors, are selected each year to take part in the residential school. Detailed information, video recordings and participant profiles can be found on the website

Application deadline for the 2020 Residential school will be 30 November 2019.
