GLI


The Global Leadership Initiative (GLI) offers Undergraduate and Postgraduate taught students from the Faculty of Social Sciences  the opportunity to attend major international summits taking place during the academic year. Accompanied by academic staff, small groups of 4-8 students will actively engage in these meetings, developing press and policy briefs facilitated by media and other forms of accreditation.

This is an opportunity for students to gain first-hand experience of international policy debates at the highest level, to attend press conferences and produce outputs visible to an international audience thereby enhancing their research skills and employability.

Student participants will be expected to produce material relevant to the conference they attend. Expected outputs include two policy briefs for online publication, as well as summative briefs to support the work of the international press and/or delegates present at the events.

All student policy briefs produced at the international summits, along with reflective post-summit pieces are available to view online via the GLOSS blog.
