Cambridge University Commonwealth Society is returning in the Easter Term with yet another Scholar's Seminar and Networking Event. We are always interested in knowing about variety of research areas our scholar member have been working on.
This time we will also be hosting a special guest, Matthew Neuhaus, an alumnus of Cambridge, as one of the speakers. He has kindly agreed to share his experience of Commonwealth and it would be a great opportunity to listen to him. Matthew studied for MPhil in International Relations at Cambridge University.

He has held many prominent positions including Director of the Political Affairs Division of the Commonwealth Secretariat in London 2002-2008; Head of the Pacific Engagement Taskforce; Assistant Secretary and Head of the CHOGM Policy Task Force and previously headed the Pacific Engagement Taskforce.
