Cumberland Lodge invites Commonwealth and Chevening Fellows for the fully funded 2019/2020 Emerging International Leaders Retreat Program. The Emerging International Leaders program equips future leaders and opinion-formers with the skills and insight necessary to drive debate, influence policy and build a powerful global network. This program focuses on Freedom of Religion or Belief (FoRB) and responds to the fact that around three-quarters of the world’s population live in countries which restrict such freedoms or fail to protect them.
Over three residential retreats at Cumberland Lodge, fellows will form an in-depth understanding of the importance of FoRB. Further, this will empower the fellows to become an advocate of human rights in your university and home country. This renowned program addresses questions such as:
