Center for Leadership Ethics in Africa (CLEA)

Africa is challenged by a crisis-ridden  world to convert its natural, cultural and human resources into stability, development and sustainability. Good leadership is the single most critical factor in harnessing potential into activity that will guarantee survival on the planet, a reversal of inequality and a rebuilding of social cohesion.

The Centre for Leadership Ethics in Africa (CLEA) at Fort Hare is a cross-disciplinary initiative that conducts research, develops postgraduate curricula and shapes debates about leadership ethics in post-apartheid South Africa and its wider theoretical and global significance. CLEA sees itself contributing to the crafting of a new generation of enlightened leaders within a space of lively and imaginative intellectual engagement
