Conceptions of leadership

 Lyne De Ver, H. ‘Conceptions of Leadership’. Background Paper 4. Birmingham: Developmental Leadership Programme, 2009

There is now a wide recognition in the international community that ‘leadership matters’ for growth and development, just as there was recognition some years ago that ‘institutions matter’. But what is ‘leadership’? How is it defined and can there be universal understandings and application of the concept?

NK WEE Concept Paper

Kabeer, N. Women’s economic empowerment and inclusive growth: Labour markets and enterprise development, London, SOAS, 2012

This paper was commissioned by DFID and IDRC with a view to locating the growing concern with women’s economic empowerment within its growth research programmes. Inclusive growth, as defined by IDRC, is growth which ensures opportunities for all sections of the population, with a special emphasis on the poor, particularly women and young people, who are most likely to be marginalised. Central to both IDRC’s and DFID’s agenda is a concern with decent jobs and the promotion of small and medium enterprise.
