Stabilisation and Governance, Corruption & State Fragility

I have the pleasure of informing you of two high-profile short courses that will be offered by the Department of Criminology from September 2015. The development of the Professional Development Programmes in Stabilisation and Governance, Corruption and State Fragility is being led by two members of the SCID Panel of Experts – Malcolm Russell and Keith Sargent, respectively – and will be delivered by them at a one-week residential course in Leicester alongside other leading international experts in their respective fields.

The courses are aligned to the SCID programme and will provide participants with the opportunity to secure credits to pursue the SCID programme should they wish. The Governance, Corruption and State Fragility course is also accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).

Further details can be found on the website (Stabilisation and Governance, Corruption and State Fragility) and the brochures (below).

We would be very grateful if you could tell any of your colleagues, friends and others who you think may be interested in these exciting, innovative and important courses, which aim to equip participants with enhanced understanding of and ability to address some of the key challenges posed by conflict-affected environments.

Thank you very much.

Best wishes, Eleanor
