Researching Character

Our research focuses on themes related to character formation and leadership. We investigate the character qualities that leaders need to possess to address society’s biggest challenges and make the most of the opportunities of a technological and globalised world. This research helps us to understand how character and leadership can be developed within universities, and in private and public sector organisations.
