Applications call for Mo Ibrahim Foundation Academy Fellowship 2020 in the Queen Elizabeth II Academy for Leadership in International Affairs.


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 the 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.

The fellow will be based full-time at Chatham House, London. The residential fellowships will resume in January 2021, with the expectation that fellows will be based in London. However, working patterns will be flexible and some aspects of the program may be held online in line with safe Covid-19 working practices.

Fellowship Structure

A fellow’s time will be split between three key areas:

  • Completing a personal research project of the fellow’s own design undertaken with the guidance of a Chatham House expert, (approximately 50%).
  • Contributing to the ongoing research activities of their host research team and other Chatham House teams as appropriate (approximately 20%).
  • Participation in the Academy’s Leadership Programme (approximately 30%). The Leadership Programme is a key part of the Academy fellowships. It provides fellows with the opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills, network, and self-awareness, which they can then draw upon in their future careers as effective leaders in their field.
