Chris Underwood

BA History Graduate

“After leaving Christ Church and its historians I did a stint in the private sector before finding my real calling as a campaigner within the UK voluntary sector, becoming Head of Campaigns for the RNID (now re-named Action on Hearing Loss). In parallel I became involved with political think-tanks such as the Fabian Society writing on foreign policy issues. In both cases my History degree was useful both in terms of content (how political issues are understood and acted upon) and training (how to construct a sound argument). I am now Head of Communications at International Alert, an NGO for which I continue to use those same skills working in armed conflicts around the world.”
