About the Fellowship

Based in London, for more than 100 years our research and ideas have helped people to understand a rapidly changing world. As a global think tank, our mission is to help governments and societies build a sustainably secure, prosperous, and just world. We pursue this mission through dialogue, analysis, and delivering solutions-based ideas.

Our Queen Elizabeth II Academy for Leadership and the Next Generation, established in 2014 and opened by Her Late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, develops future policy makers and drives positive change in world affairs by equipping future leaders with the knowledge, skills, and networks to make a lasting, positive impact on international affairs.
