Global Governance Forum | Princeton US China Coalition
When and Where
04/04/2018 - 08/04/2018
Uniting the most promising student leaders across the world on Princeton’s campus, the Princeton US-China Coalition is proud to announce our annual Global Governance Forum. Selected students will have the opportunity to participate in discussions led by prominent US-China academics, engage in fast-paced crisis simulations, and network with companies working at the forefront of the US-China interface. The conference will culminate in a capstone policy proposal project, where students will be presented with a theoretical case in US-China relations and challenged to present substantive recommendations in response to the issue. Featuring prominent academics and industry leaders, an intimate environment with students hailing from across the globe, and the resources of a world-class university, the Global Governance Forum offers a unique and unforgettable experience in the exploration of US-China policy.
This upcoming spring, the Princeton U.S. China Coalition is excited to be hosting the annual Global Governance Forum focused on US China relations. The PUCC Global Governance Forum will draw together 30 exceptional student delegates from universities across the US, China, and around the world. To ensure smaller-scale interaction of the highest caliber, we will select the 30 delegates through competitive application. At the conference, we plan to host 1) lectures followed by Q and A 2) simulations of multilateral dialogue and 3) policy briefings. The policy briefings—a capstone of our forum—will have delegates work intensively in groups to formulate and present policy proposals outlining how countries can tackle a specific 21st century global challenge. From these activities, delegates from vastly different backgrounds will have the unique chance to trade perspectives, tackle timely world issues, and retain a global community of peers eager to shape 21st century US-China relations.
The Global Governance Forum will consist of a series of lectures and talks, delivered by both prominent Princeton faculty, and other distinguished scholars in the field of US-China relations. These talks will focus on a comparative examination of the political and legal institutions in China and the United States, and will cover a wide-ranging spectrum of both historic and contemporary issues. Stay tuned as we roll out our speaker list over the coming weeks.
A cornerstone of the Global Governance Forum. Delegates will be assigned teams, and presented with a policy issue relevant to both the US and China. They will then be expected to formulate a comprehensive policy proposal and present it to a panel of academics and US-China scholars for critique.
Crisis simulations are loosely based on the simulations run by Princeton’s Center for International Security Studies. Delegates will each have the opportunity to represent the US and China during a simulation, where they will have to solve a major geopolitical crisis while representing the interests of their country to the best of their ability. The Global Governance Forum will also invite regional experts on the US and China, as well as faculty and academics to participate in the simulations as well.
PUCC will invite a number of prominent non-governmental organizations, non-profits, and companies working in the field of US-China relations to attend the Global Governance Forum. This will provide delegates in attendance with the chance to learn about the impact of extra-governmental organizations in maintaining the US-China relationship, as well as a valuable networking opportunity.
