The International Leaders Programme is a two-year Programme designed to increase the cohort of leaders who can effectively represent the wider library sector in the international arena, and to develop leaders within IFLA.

Leaders Programme Associates selected to participate from 2012-2014 represent every major library sector and geographic region and bring a range of international experiences to the projects that Associates will be attached to during the Programme.  They will participate in eight days of activities in Helsinki, including: seminar and workshop sessions on issues with a global impact led by leaders in the sector and related fields; participation in specified business meetings; attendance at specified professional programme sessions; working within groups to prepare presentations or reports; and liaison with IFLA Governing Board members.

A cohort of Leaders Programme Counsellors from across IFLA’s membership provide support and guidance to Associates throughout the Programme, which include representation from all IFLA official languages.

The Programme is administered by the Action for Development through Libraries Programme (ALP) under the general direction of the IFLA Governing Board.
