Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, is a world-leading policy institute based in London. Its mission is to help governments and societies build a sustainably secure, prosperous and just world. It was founded in 1919 by British and American delegates to the Paris Peace Conference, seeking to establish an Anglo-American Institute of foreign affairs to study international problems with a view to preventing future wars.
Thursday, February 28th, 6:30 PM: Join us for a panel held together with King’s Centre for Strategic Communications, and learn more about the emerging field of strategic communications! Topics like propaganda, public relations and even corporate communications often cause some confusion, however, King’s College is one of the few universities in the world to teach strategic communications (SC) as an MA.
King’s Centre for Strategic Communications (KCSC) aims to be the leading global centre of expertise on SC. Led by internationally renowned experts from the Department of War Studies and partners from the policy and practitioner communities, it provides practical solutions to contemporary communication challenges rooted in cutting-edge academic research. The event will take place at 6:30 PM and the place will be updated shortly.
