AGCLE researchers (MA, Ph.D., Postdoctoral and Senior Research Staff) are engaged in cutting edge research on effective ethical agency (a pervasive albeit typically implicit conception of leadership). They are guided by the view that intellectual understandings of ethics alone do not motivate action that coheres with these understandings. In addition to belief, emotional dispositions and context also play central roles in promoting the right patterns of behaviour. The precise mechanisms that bridge belief and action will need to be understood properly, and this is one of the central concerns of our research team.

Research at the AGCLE is wide ranging, from the very practical concern with how best to promote effective ethical agency to the deeply theoretical concerns with understanding the nature of ethical agency. Theory and practice inform each other and it is in the dialogue between the theoretical and the practical that the specific research concerns of the AGCLE will acquire their distinctive flavour.
