Program offers Chinese youth leaders perspectives on U.S. government
Participants in the sixth annual China-Yale Youth Leaders Dialogue appeared with Pericles Lewis, Yale University’s vice president for global strategy and deputy provost for international affairs (above, at center), during the program’s closing ceremony held recently at the Greenberg Conference Center.
Established in 2013, the Dialogue was created through a partnership between Yale University and the All-China Youth Federation. The visiting delegation, comprised of provincial youth organization leaders, government and party officials, and private sector executives, spent a week at Yale engaging with faculty, students, World Fellows, and local officials to discuss topics ranging from U.S. politics and policies to innovation, education, and governance. The group then traveled to Washington, D.C. for meetings with U.S. government officials and experts on U.S.-China relations to discuss other matters of mutual interest.
The Dialogue offers rising Chinese leaders a comparative perspective on theories and practices of American government, bilateral relations, and higher education in the U.S. and globally. More information about the Dialogue can be found here.
