Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, is a world-renowned independent policy institute. Based in London, our mission is to help build a sustainably secure, prosperous and just world. The Queen Elizabeth II Academy for Leadership in International Affairs was formally launched by the patron of Chatham House, Her Majesty The Queen, on 18 November 2014. It offers potential leaders from around the world the opportunity to get involved and contribute to the work which Chatham House does.
Academy fellowships provide emerging leaders at the mid-point of their careers with the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge, publish, speak at events, expand their personal networks, and further develop an understanding of critical issues in international affairs, which will enable them to contribute to positive change in their home countries and broader region. Fellows join a diverse cohort of professionals from a variety of sectors including academia, NGOs, business, government or the media who are looking for the next step or transition in their career.
To apply for our 2021 Fellowships, we ask that you propose a research project that aims to contribute to Chatham House's work on the promise and challenge of inclusive global governance in the 21st century. OSUN Academy Fellowships will contribute to the Fellows’ on-going research projects and enhance their engagement in OSUN academic and outreach programs. The candidates will define clear research objectives for the term of the Fellowship at Chatham House. These objectives will be well aligned with both the wider context of academic work of the Fellow and the thematic and regional questions of the existing research programs of Chatham House.
Fellows are strongly encouraged to consider our existing research programmes and develop a research proposal that seeks to make a direct contribution to our work on specific topics and regions and to link this to the challenge of regional and global governance.
Below you can see some suggested topic areas for research projects. You should take into consideration how you can contribute to these priority research areas when designing your project proposal.
Global Economy and Finance
Energy, Environment and Resources
