The Global Leadership Initiative goes to Japan
The award-winning Global Leadership Initiative (G7) went to Japan for the G7 Leaders Summit.
The GLI, the founders of which include Department of Politics academics Dr Garrett Brown and Dr Hayley Stevenson, takes teams of social science students to landmark international summits, giving the students a chance to apply their skills in practice and offer credible academic analysis of what happens at the summits.
In the last week of May the team went to Ishe-Shima in Japan for the G7 Leaders Summit. They provided wide coverage of the issues covered at the summit, including the symbolic act of US President Barack Obama visiting the site of Hiroshima.
Earlier in the month, the team behind the GLI were recognised with a University of Sheffield Senate Award. This prestigious award for excellence in learning and teaching is testament to the value of the scheme.
