This summer from August 16th to 20th, more than 500 people will take part in the 2019 Harvard College Project for Asian and International Relations Conference (HPAIR 2019), in Nur-Sultan the capital of Kazakhstan. The event is organized by students of Nazarbayev University. According to the conference’s organizing committee, more than 70 international and regional speakers have been invited to address conference goers during the week’s proceedings.
“HPAIR student leaders carry on the Harvard tradition of creating opportunities to learn by doing. It’s a hallmark of the HPAIR experience that has benefited generations of students – including myself. I was a student delegate from the University of Cambridge at the HPAIR conference in Seoul in 1996 and subsequently served as a workshop leader at the HPAIR conference in Hong Kong in 1999 during my time as a predoctoral fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School”, said Dr. John Park, Director of the Korea Working Group and Lecturer at the Harvard Kennedy School, current HPAIR advisor (USA).
