The Foreign Policy Summer School Conference 2016
20th to 24th June 2016
London, United Kingdom

The Foreign Policy Summer School Conference 2016 cordially invites applications from emerging leaders around the world to attend London's most prestigious Summer School Conference: The Foreign Policy Summer School Conference in London, June 2016.

The 2015 Foreign Policy Summer School Conference, saw many students from around the world come to London for one intensive week at a private members' club in St. James's London where delegates had the opportunity to analyse the most pressing security issues facing western policymakers today, while gaining essential employable skills for careers in foreign policy.

Competition to participate was fierce with many more applications from many countries than there were places available.

A lucky few conference delegates were selected to attend the Foreign Policy Forum, a major conference for stakeholders in foreign policy led by thought leaders, experts in security and UN officials that discussed the future of western security at an Inn of Court in London.

Speakers at the Foreign Policy Forum included:

Edward Mortimer CMG, Distinguished Fellow, All Souls College; former Chief Speechwriter for UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and former Director of Communications of the United Nations.

Michele Griffin, Director of the Policy Planning Unit in the Executive Office of the Secretary-General at the United Nations.

Patrick Cockburn, Middle East correspondent since 1979 for the Financial Times and, presently, The Independent.

Professor Sir Colin Berry, Knight Principal of the Imperial Society of Knights Bachelor.

Professor Hall Gardner, Chair of International and Comparative Politics at the American University of Paris.

Professor Alan Lee-Williams OBE, Former President of the Atlantic Treaty Association and former member of the Trilateral Commission.

The Foreign Policy Summer School Conference 2016 will convene again for four days in June 2016 starting on: Monday 20th June 2016.

The Foreign Policy Summer School Conference 2016 will cover key topics of important relevance to the leaders of western nation states today. Successfully selected delegates of the conference will have the opportunity to examine and debate the topics in detail.

The conference agenda includes: The Crisis in East-West Relations, War with Russia? And NATO Security, The Islamic State, Iran and the Security of Middle East Oil, Western Defense Realities and Futures, Next Generation Weapons Technologies, A Chinese World Order? The Secret Space Race, The Next Thermonuclear War and Can We Have a Philosophy for the West?

Delegates of the conference will have the opportunity to gain key employable skills for careers in foreign policy, such as: Parliamentary and corporate boardroom debating skills, Etiquette in conducting oneself in the foreign policy sector, Writing a policy paper for a CEO or Member of Parliament, Presenting your research to a corporate boardroom of executives or a party political committee, Media presentation skills and giving interviews on camera, as well as Collaborating in teams for research assignments and presentations.

Half of the attendees have already been selected. There are still some places available. Discounted registration is closing soon. Applications from emerging young leaders to participate are being reviewed now on a first come first serve basis.
