fbpx Senior Fellow-Led Study Groups | Harvard Kennedy School


M-RCBG Senior Fellows are distinguished professionals from government and/or business who come to HKS to address issues at the interface of the public and private sectors: regulation, corporate governance, and the role of government in the changing global economy. Senior Fellows strengthen the connection between theory and practice, offering both faculty and students insights to the nature of social problems and their most practical solutions.

In addition to undertaking independent research projects that culminate in a journal article or book, Senior Fellows lead Study Groups for HKS students.

Study Groups  are in-person discussion sessions, governed by the Chatham House Rule

Additional Study Groups led by 2022-23 Senior Fellows will be posted below as they are announced. To view previously offered study groups, please see the study group archive.
