Andy Ratcliffe

Director of Strategy and Development, Africa Governance Initiative


Andy Ratcliffe is AGI’s Director of Strategy and Development. Andy was previously a Senior Policy Adviser on Education in the Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit in London. Before that Andy worked for the University of Oxford on definitions and measures of poverty in the UK and in Africa. AGI works with African leaders at two levels: At the political leadership level, Tony Blair draws on his ten years as Prime Minister to offer leaders the kind of advice on reform that only someone who has stood in a leader’s shoes can give. At the same time our teams, based permanently in each country, work shoulder-to-shoulder with counterparts to put in place the ‘nuts and bolts’ needed to get things done.
