Attachment hosts

As part of the Fellowship Programme, each Fellow undertakes a tailored programme of individual visits. These visits allow each Fellow to meet with a variety of organisations which closely reflect their Action Plan and professional interests.

This opportunity to witness first hand the working of UK institutions and organisations gives the Fellows a unique insight into the UK’s political and civil society, and is seen by many of them as one of the most informative and rewarding aspects of the Programme. It has a significant influence in shaping Fellows’ Action Plans and future work in their home countries once the Programme has finished.

Our visits cover a wide range of areas and we are grateful for all the support we receive from parliamentarians, local authorities, media organisations, businesses, professional bodies, NGOs, academics and others. All our hosts kindly donate their time to our Programme – and we are very grateful for their ongoing support.
