About Strait Talk

Strait Talk is a nonpartisan, youth-run organization that exists to foster peaceful progress on the Taiwan Strait issue through educating, connecting, and empowering young leaders from both sides of the Taiwan Strait and the United States. Currently in its tenth year, Brown University Strait Talk has brought together more than 250 Chinese, Taiwanese, and Americans to learn and take action on the cross-Strait issue. The symposium has inspired many delegates to go on to initiate programs and activities that promote a peaceful cross-Strait future in their hometowns and around the world.

The week-long symposium will bring together 15 delegates from Taiwan, the US and China to engage in over 35 hours of constructive dialogue sessions as well as conflict resolution workshops to come up with feasible proposals for a sustainable cross-Strait future. Prominent speakers and professors from different US universities and think tanks will also meet and speak with the delegates and discuss cross-Strait issues in various panels throughout the week. At the end of the week, delegates will have the chance to discuss and present their proposals to various policy think tanks in Boston.

We hope to recruit interested students or young professionals (ages 18-35) to apply as part of the American, Chinese and Taiwanese delegations to the symposium. Application forms are attached, and additional information is available on our website: Should you have any questions, please feel free to email me at The application deadline is October 6th, 2014.
