2013 Duke-UNC China Leadership Summit Now Accepting Applications

Now Accepting Applications for the 2013 Duke-UNC China Leadership Summit (CLS)

CLS, now in its third year, is a three-day conference hosted between Duke University and the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. CLS aims to strengthen Duke-UNC collaboration by bringing together undergraduate and graduate students from Duke, UNC, and other top universities in the US and China with acute and demonstrated interests in US-China affairs. CLS aims not only to offer a series of esteemed US-China speakers to the general Duke and UNC public, but also to generate interdisciplinary interest and discussion, create opportunities for research presentation and collaboration, and present networking opportunities to explore potential careers and other China-related opportunities for delegates and attendants. The conference will create a networking platform for members of both campuses to discuss issues related to the growing US-China rivalry and present and collaborate on innovative ideas for tackling future issues.

In addition to applying to be a delegate, students can be chosen as moderators for panels during the conference. We also encourage applicants who would like to present relevant research at the conference to apply.

This year’s conference theme is Sustainability: the sustainability of China’s environmental policies, its economic policies and trade relations with the United States, prevalent political trends and models, as well as issues of cultural and social transition.
