This year Canning House and King’s College London launched a new Visiting Fellowship. The Visiting Fellowship is based at King’s Maughan Library, drawing on the extensive Canning House Library Collection housed there. The first research project, focusing on the Impact of Habitat I on the Urban Poor in Latin America, is underway.
Applications are currently closed.
In summer of 2017, Canning House established the Trade Policy Forum to help address issues relating to barriers impeding increased trade and investment between the UK and Latin America, and identify possible solutions to overcome them.
The forum convenes senior representatives from government, business leaders from the private sector, as well as senior individuals from civil society groups and NGOs, on a case by case basis. Meetings are held in private to encourage free and open discussion, and a summary of the key points discussed and recommendations made is circulated to those who attended. An executive summary is also made available for public access.
