asked Her Majesty's Government:

What progress has been made on the British Council's Inter Action Leadership course for Africans. [HL1576]

The British Council's “Inter Action” programme seeks to develop a powerful network of like-minded leaders, supporting inter-cultural dialogue, across a wide range of countries, and provide these individuals with new skills to defuse conflict within communities and among factions.

Since 2004, 1,200 emerging leaders from 19 African countries have completed the “Inter Action” course, with a further 1,800 people having participated in the programme through associated events and conferences.
