The course is designed to empower emerging leaders in civil society, private and public sector organisations in their roles as service providers, analysts and policy makers.

The OSISA Journalism Summer School is a response to the perceived multiple challenges confronting journalism and the media in Southern Africa.

As usual, where there is ignorance about a particular issue, particularly one that is both sensitive and personal, the tendency is to demonise and belittle, thus creating the ideal environment for marginalisation and social exclusion – and for ensuring that little is learned and few new concepts are accepted.

The Leadership and Society course is convened by the African Leadership Centre


This is the second course challenging marginalisation, social exclusion and inequality to be run by OSISA in collaboration with the Centre for African Studies at London University. The course will run from September 16-27 in Gaborone, Botswana and will bring together participants from civil society, government and the private sector.
