The Duke-UNC China Leadership Summit is now accepting applications!

Applications are due February 1, 2014 at 11:59 PM

The Duke-UNC China Leadership Summit is the south’s preeminent student conference on US-China relations. Each year, we welcome distinguished speakers from academia, business, and politics, as well as more than 100 delegates from around the world. Our 2014 theme is “The Chinese Dream: Local Realities and Global Implications.” This year’s conference will be held March 28-30, 2014 at Duke’s CIEMAS building and the FedEx Center at UNC Chapel Hill. Transportation is provided.

Speakers for this year’s conference include:

  • Rachel Wasser, co-founder of Teach for China
  • David Shambaugh, senior fellow at the Brookings Institute, professor at the Elliott School, recent author of China Goes Global
  • Jenny Chan, China labor activist and senior advisor to Students Against Corporate Misbehavior

Damien Ma, political analyst, columnist, and recent author of In Line Behind A Billion People
We encourage anyone with any interest in international relations or East Asia studies to apply, though undergraduate and graduate students of all backgrounds are welcome! Spots for Duke students are limited and so applicants are chosen in the first round of applications must complete an additional interview with a CLS team member.

To apply, and for more information, visit our website www.dukeunccls.com. Applications are due February 1, 2014 at 11:59 PM. All applicants will be notified of whether they have advanced to the second round by February 7. Please email emily.z.feng@gmail.com and rui.wang3@duke.edu  with any questions.
