Harvard’s Institute of Politics, located at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, announced that Gordon Brown, prime minister of Britain (2007-10) and U.K. parliamentary member, will serve as a visiting fellow at the institute this fall.

Visiting fellows traditionally meet with student groups; lead discussion groups on topical issues and their experiences in public and political service; and participate in public policy classes with students and Harvard University faculty.

“We are confident our students, faculty and University community will enjoy engaging with Gordon Brown, a prominent international leader with experience at the highest levels of government and public service,” said Institute of Politics interim Director John C. Culver.

Brown’s fellowship will occur the week of September 20, during which time he will deliver the Malcolm Wiener Lecture in International Political Economy in the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum on September 23.
