The Fellowship is an independent and non-partisan executive programme for 24 mid-career political and civic leaders working in Northern Ireland. It aims to strengthen democracy and to ensure that the current and future cadres of political leaders in Northern Ireland are best placed to lead into the next decade and navigate through complexity.
The Fellowship Programme is delivered by the Centre for Democracy and Peace Building (CDPB) working with key stakeholders, policy makers and facilitators from leading academic institutions including Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford with support from its Advisory Board.
Participants will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the history of Oxford, the oldest university in the English-speaking world as well as the top-ranked university in the world (Times Higher Education World University Rankings). Here in the ‘city of dreaming spires’, they will enter an oasis of learning, where the world’s greatest leaders and thinkers have studied for over 900 years and where research breakthroughs continue to be made every week.
