Jacinda Ardern has announced she is heading to Harvard University, just weeks after stepping down as prime minister

Just weeks after delivering her final speech to New Zealand’s parliament, Jacinda Ardern has revealed what’s next.

The former PM is taking up three roles at Harvard University, where she will study and speak on leadership, governance and online extremism.

In an Instagram post, Ardern says she is “incredibly humbled” to be joining the university on joint fellowships at the Kennedy School’s Center for Public Leadership and the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society.

She will focus on the study of online extremism at the law school, and on building leadership and governance skills at the Kennedy School.

Ardern notes “While I’ll be gone for a semester… I’ll be coming back at the end of the fellowships. After all, New Zealand is home!”

It’s not the first time the former prime minister has visited the American university.

Last year, she was given an honorary doctorate of law and earned a standing ovation when speaking at Harvard’s commencement on the topics of gun control and democracy.

The former prime minister will also continue her work on the Christchurch Call.

This is an inter-governmental and tech company pledge she developed after the Christchurch terror attacks to prevent extremist and terrorist content being spread online. #trending #featured
