We welcome you to The Pericles Foundation!
Our foundation is a new think tank in London with a mission to make innovative scholarship accessible to a broad audience and to deepen its impact. We are devoted to nurturing a future generation of leaders.
We are inspired by Pericles of Athens who led classical Athens into a golden age. Pericles of Athens strengthened the Athenian democracy whilst cultivating the arts, philosophy and the sciences. We draw timeless lessons to deepen understanding of our time and our future. Pericles of Athens reflects the core values of democracy, liberty, merit and the cultivation of higher learning. We too, seek to recapture the meaning of excellence across disciplines.
The idea for the foundation was conceived in Geneva where us co-founders attended a security conference. As two of the youngest academics amidst a sea of experienced delegates from across the globe, we reflected on the importance of nurturing and engaging young scholars, the merits of cultural exchange and the synergy that can be created and galvanized. This led to the birth of The Pericles Foundation.
With a growing international network of researchers, authors, publishers and institutional partners, we are in a unique position to build bridges across generations, disciplines and continents.
The Pericles Foundation is a company limited by guarantee and a charity registered in England, the Netherlands and the United States.
We look forward to you accompanying us on our journey, one that shall create a lasting legacy for the future.
Benjamin and Reema
