The YCW community is cordially invited to the Public Presentation and Closing Ceremony of the 2016 Strait Talk Berkeley Symposium (海峽尋新柏克萊論壇/海峡寻新伯克利论坛). This year’s symposium takes place from March 27April 2, 2016.

14 delegates from Taiwan, Mainland China, and the United States were chosen to participate in speaker panels and 40+ hours of Interactive Conflict Resolution (ICR) sessions. Days of dialogue and discussion result in the drafting of a Consensus Document on economic, political and cultural ties as well as proposals of peace projects.

Strait Talk is a non-partisan dialogue program that seeks to transform international conflict by connecting people from both sides of the Taiwan Strait. It serves as a bridge between grassroots youth advocacy and elite-driven network theory. Its process is based on the Interactive Conflict Resolution method, which has been used since the 1960s to facilitate dialogue between people engaged in apparently intractable conflicts. The basic goals of ICR are to create personal trust across conflict lines and to develop creative and workable ideas to help spur official dialogue.
