HPAIR 2010 Harvard Conference
Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA
Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations (HPAIR) is a student-run organization of the Harvard University Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Since 1991, HPAIR has continuously gathered a growing pool of international students from top universities, renowned academics, business professionals, and political leaders to engage in our rigorous educational events. Since 2008, HPAIR has expanded to include an academic conference on the Harvard University campus-the HPAIR Harvard Conference. In 2010 HPAIR Harvard Conference, each delegate will closely examine 2 specific case-studies designed by Harvard graduate students and faculty members, select an interest group to represent, and together with 20 other delegates, tackle real-life issues from different perspectives and make suggestions incorporating inputs from different interest groups.
