Join the RUSI NextGen Community

Connecting the Next Generation of leaders and thinkers


The NextGen initiative is a new RUSI-led network where young professionals can come together, understand, and engage in global issues, build a network and support one another through the early stages of their careers. We offer a diverse range of events centred around global affairs, provide networking opportunities and content catered to the community. NextGen is free to join and welcomes every young professional regardless of what sector they’re in, or what level of expertise they possess.

About RUSI NextGen

Integration has been at the heart of Defence Strategy in recent years, and this must extend to people working within the Defence industry whether that be the public, private or Military sectors. RUSI NextGen will help people at the start of their career form relationships and share ideas across sector boundaries.
