Prof Niemandt’s research focuses on missional ecclesiology and missional leadership. He is currently researching leadership in complex systems. Dr Fourie’s research centres around morality in Africa, specifically how to approach morality in non-Western contexts. He is developing a descriptive social-theoretical approach. In addition he is also researching leadership in partnership with the Albert Luthuli Centre for Responsible Leadership.

Congratulations to these colleagues! The Faculty of Theology takes pride in them and wishes them all the best for their academic careers.
