The program will focus on the opportunities and tensions that emerge as countries move toward more participatory politics, more open economies, and more integration into an evolving global economy.
The purpose of the program is to help participants sharpen their problem-solving, analytic, and strategic action skills as they contribute to major policy and institutional changes.
The goal of the program is for participants to return to their countries with greater capacity to define problems and analyze policy options, a broader perspective on the task of leadership, and a renewed commitment to work with others to make a difference to the development of their societies.
