2019 Summer Global Leadership Seminar

The Rise of Political Populism

Thank you to all the students, parents and speakers for making the 2019 Summer Global Leadership Seminar a fantastic program! 

More information on the 2020 Summer Global Leadership Seminar will be posted here in the coming weeks. 

The 2019 Summer Global Leadership Seminar brings together students from across the Philadelphia region to learn, debate and discuss crucial topics in world affairs. This year's program is titled "The Rise of Political Populism" and will feature debates, a "crisis simulation," lectures from academics and policymakers, and a culminating trip to Washington D.C.

Participants can expect to explore the rise of both left-wing and right-wing populism in countries around the world including recent examples in Venezuela and Italy, among others. Students will explore the contexts and cultures of these unique case studies and will apply that knowledge to current trends in America and abroad.
