Upcoming Events and Lectures

10th Annual Strait Talk Symposium @ Brown University. November 14-21, 2014Strait Talk Symposium brings 15 delegates from China, Taiwan, and the US together at Brown University for a weeklong discussion on the Taiwan Strait issue. The delegates, mostly undergraduate and graduate students, will undergo interactive conflict resolution sessions to break down misconceptions and prejudices of the other, so as to achieve consensus on the fundamental issues that plague China-Taiwan relations. The symposium has produced over 200 delegates over the past nine events held at Brown University and has spawned Strait Talk across the rest of the world, including sister chapters in Berkeley, Taipei, and Hong Kong. The Brown Community is invited to 3 panels, 2 movie screenings, and 1 interactive session with the delegates:
