Are you a student or young professional committed to international peace? Interested in conflict resolution, international relations, East Asia, or constructive dialogue? Ready to participate in an intensive, skill-building week to invest in a future based on mutual understanding?
Strait Talk is a non-partisan dialogue program that seeks to transform international conflict by connecting young people from both sides of the Taiwan Strait and the United States and empowering them to strive for peace. We bring 15 students and young professionals to the Brown campus, where they work together in conflict resolution workshops and ultimately produce a consensus document. During the week, Strait Talk also organizes a series of public events, including panels that bring together scholars and experts to speak on the most salient issues of the cross-strait conflict.
Strait Talk is currently accepting applications for its 2010 Symposium, which will take place from Friday, October 29th to Friday, November 5th.
