Following the last two year’s success, Senior Fellow Action Day 2021 will focus on workshops led by Senior Fellows. These workshops are intended to equip Fellows and Senior Fellows with skills and knowledge to take action on key issues in their future career paths.

Action Day 2021 concludes this year’s Copenhagen Fellowship: The Unity of the Realm and Human Rights.
