Today the Council on Geostrategy can announce we will be working with two new associate fellows, Matthew Henderson and William Young.

Matthew Henderson is a former diplomat with nearly 30 years experience in the field, much of which he spent in China and East Asia in close co-operation with the Five Eyes group and other aligned partners. Matthew studied China at the universities of Cambridge, Peking and Oxford and since leaving the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has worked for a security consultancy and a think-tank, and as an independent consultant. He has now become a James Cook Associate Fellow in Indo-Pacific Geopolitics. Today, Matthew published his first report for the Council on Geostrategy, entitled: How the Chinese Communist Party ‘positions’ the United Kingdom.

William Young has become the Council on Geostrategy’s first William Stanley-Jevons Associate Fellow in Environmental Security. William is a director at BloombergNEF, Bloomberg’s strategic research business and climate lead on the East-West focused New Economy Forum. He was formerly Chief of Staff to the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operations Officer and prior to that was instrumental in launching NEF’s research capabilities and advising clients on technology, finance, economics, politics and business opportunities in the transition to a low carbon economy.
