Visit from the Royal College of Defence Studies On Wednesday 14th March 2018, an international audience gathered once again under the auspices of the Centre as we hosted the Royal College of Defence Studies. The RCDS is made up of senior military personnel from around the globe including the USA, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Nigeria, South Korea and Chile. Our visitors were undertaking a year-long programme of leadership within society and exploring how to build strong and secure communities. Our focus was to inform delegates about the ways in which here in Leicester and Leicestershire, communities and statutory partners work together to promote integration and manage difficulties which might emerge. The RCDS were delighted with the visit and thanks go to our colleagues from various faith communities who took part.
