The 2020 Chatham House Summer School (16–18-year-olds)

The programme takes place online over five days, Monday 13 July to Friday 17 July from 14:00 to 15:30, conducted by Chatham House experts, through a series of interactive discussions and Q&A sessions.

There is no cost to participate, this is a free course. If you would like to make a donation towards Chatham House, we would be grateful for a contribution of any size towards our Annual Fund.

Chatham House is an independent, non-profit research and policy institute in central London focused on international relations and global issues. It was founded in 1920 and has a vision ‘to help governments and societies build a sustainably secure, prosperous and just world’.

100 years on from our founding, this summer school will explore some of the major themes our researchers and experts are working on today, and give you an opportunity to participate in the discussion and share your vision for the future.

This summer school is aimed at GCSE to A-Level students of politics, history, economics, geography or any related subject.

You will be able to interact with world-leading experts on international affairs and gain an insight into careers within the charity/not-for-profit sector as a whole.

The Chatham House Summer School programme offers participants ten sessions of webinars and networking opportunities delivered in our virtual classroom to allow students to continue online learning and interacting.
