Peace Projects

Strait Talk is a non-partisan organization that seeks to foster peace across the Taiwan Strait. Every fall, the Brown University chapter invites a total of fifteen undergraduates, graduates, and young professionals from Taiwan, Mainland China, and around the United States to serve as delegates in a week-long Symposium at Brown University. Throughout the week, the delegates engage in interactive conflict resolution sessions and attend lectures and seminars to inform their discussions. The Symposium culminates with the drafting of a Consensus Document, which represents the unanimous cooperation of these delegates and contains recommendations range from economic and security policies to cultural programs .
