Deconstructing Culture

Each year the Institute engages student leaders in discussions of key issues in international affairs so that they can understand and think critically about their world.

This year’s by youth, for youth World Affairs Institute will focus on the theme of Deconstructing Culture.

Through interactive sessions and workshops with experts, activists, and artists, youth leaders will explore how we...

  • Are shaped by our individual and collective cultural identities,
  • Can build and sustain diverse communities through the lens of migration policy,
  • Advocate for belonging,
  • Uplift everyone when we respect, appreciate, and celebrate diversity.

The Institute will be divided into an opening plenary, topical breakouts, and interactive sessions, with cultural showcases throughout the day.
