Harvard-South Korea Summit

 

Seoul 2023

From Wednesday, May 17th, 2023, to Sunday, May 21st, 2023, a delegation of HUFPI members will be traveling to Seoul to embark on a cultural exchange and learn more about East Asian and US-Korea relations. This experience will be more interactive and interpersonal than HUFPI’s typical conferences, involving inter-student exchange and dialogue, mentorship from experts, and explorations of Seoul’s political and cultural history through on-site visits and experiences. 

 

One of the fixtures of a Foreign Summit is the ability to expand the way we think about issues and develop relationships with people whose life experiences differ from our own. We hope to extend this principle throughout our cultural exchange, whether through dialogues with South Korean college students in debates and roundtables; speaking with and hearing from prominent foreign policy experts, academics, and professionals; and deepening our familiarity with Korea’s most historically and culturally significant sites, as well as places that are important to Korea’s relationship with the U.S. 

 

While the cultural exchange will last for four days, it is our hope that delegates will carry the lessons they learn—whether regarding U.S.-South Korea relations, Korean culture, or the fabric of Korean society—with them for a lifetime.
