Research and Thought Leadership Program

The Research and Thought Leadership Program serves as a repository and think tank of sorts regarding issues which lie at the nexus between gender, radicalization, conflict prevention, extremism, youth empowerment and entrepreneurship, governance and globalization.  Furthermore, The African Development Imperative codifies and shares lessons gleaned from activities subsumed within the core clusters and The Advisory Services and Resource Stewardship Practice (introduced below) through occasional papers and monographs; these publications ultimately will inform future interventions and be accessible to our partners.

Advisory Services and Resource Stewardship Practice

The Advisory Services and Resource Stewardship Practice offers capacity development, advisory and research and training services to inter-governmental organizations (IGOs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and other entities in the public and private sectors in the areas listed hereunder. 

1 Violent Radicalization and Extremism Mitigation

2 Activism and Governance

3 Entrepreneurship and Innovation

This consultancy arm of The African Development Imperative is keen to improve the lot of young people and by working directly with the institutions with the reach and mandate to impact them.  In so doing, we will augment the knowledge and capacity requisite for effectively managing and deploying these institutions' resources at the behest of all citizens.

Whilst our focus is on Africa, the Americas and Europe, we understand the inter-connectedness and globalized nature of the world, and are poised to partner with others in the Global South and North owing to our broad training and deep experiences in International Relations and cognate areas.
