As Harvard’s largest annual student connection in Asia, the Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations creates a forum of exchange and facilitates discussion of the most important economic, political, and social issues relevant to the Asia-Pacific region. Since 1991, the annual HPAIR conferences have brought together students from the world’s foremost universities and leaders in the fields of government, business, culture, and academia. Join us in 2016 to commemorate HPAIR’s 25th anniversary as we seek to make the Asia Conference more financially accessible, celebrate greater diversity, and empower each other to change the world.
Applications are invited to join at The Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations (HPAIR) Asia Conference 2016 in Hong and China. HPAIR is student-run organization of the Harvard University Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
Programs intend to achieve three goals:
- Provide a dynamic forum of exchange on international issues vital to Asia;
- Foster long-term relationships among young leaders from around the globe;
- Connect talented delegates with some of today’s leaders in academia, business and government.
Today, HPAIR has significantly expanded to offer two annual conferences. Through plenary sessions, panels, keynotes, workshops, and case studies, the conferences provide valuable opportunities for discussion about challenges and trends in the international landscape. Continuing its tradition of academic excellence, the HPAIR Harvard Conference seeks to create a rigorous forum for dialogue and exchange.
HPAIR organizes Harvard University’s largest annual student conferences in the Asia-Pacific region. Since 1991, They have continuously gathered a growing pool of international students from top universities, renowned academics, business professionals, and political leaders to engage in our rigorous educational events.
The HPAIR Asia Conference is a 5-day academic program in mid-August in an Asian country. Delegates will benefit from gaining a broader exposure to issues spanning multiple arenas, including political, social, economic, cultural, and business. As the world becomes more globalized as well as commercialized, the boundary between business and other aspects of society is increasingly less rigid. The Asia Conference seeks to capture this phenomenon and help delegates understand its impacts on the future of international relations.
In addition to its international conferences, HPAIR aims to promote understanding of the economic, political, social, and cultural issues facing the Asia-Pacific region within the Harvard community by organizing panels and other events on Harvard’s campus.
