    Experience what it takes to negotiate and maintain peaceful diplomatic relations.

    Tensions in East Asia continue to make headlines. This traveling program offers you a unique chance to gain perspective on the region’s complex history and present-day challenges. Start in Taipei, engaging in debates on current issues. Then, see it all culminate in a final mock negotiation in Seoul with other Global Navigators—putting your new knowledge and debating skills to the test!

    Meet experts and deepen your understanding of how diverse groups resolve conflicts. Tour the offices of political parties and diplomats in Taipei. Visit the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that separates North and South Korea. Explore the long-term diplomatic actions taken to keep the region peaceful and stable. 

    Soak in the variety each city offers, too—from the lush gardens and skyscrapers of Taipei to the neon-lit streets and ancient palaces of Seoul. On excursions, travel to Taiwan’s Kinmen Island and visit the city of Busan, in southern South Korea. In these two countries, you’ll encounter distinct cultures, languages, and flavors and meet local teens to expand your views on diplomacy and sustaining peace.
