Humanitarian Affairs UK and the Vietnam Government, would like to cordially invite 8 promising students to attend the 7th University Scholars Leadership Symposium in Hanoi, Vietnam from August 1 to 7, 2016. Thammasat University has been selected to be on our priority list as we are inviting universities worldwide who provide holistic learning opportunities for their students to become a world-class global citizen.
The Symposium will invite over 8 international speakers to highlight the humanitarian issues around the world. Tim Peters is an American Nobel Peace Prize finalist and the world’s most visible advocate for human rights in North Korea. Peters will return to the 7th USLS to address the challenges he overcame to gain the American government’s approval for the first North Korean refugee. Delegates will also hear from Susan Hammond, a daughter of a United States Vietnam Veteran and a leading expert on Agent Orange.
“I think Humanitarian Affairs UK has created such a wonderful platform for you to gather together to discuss leadership, to discuss your own actions, and to deal with humanitarian and development challenges that the world faces.”
Mr. Haoliang Xu, Assistant Secretary General, United Nations New York
“I was soon to learn that my image of the world would be torn apart. Perhaps, the most valuable lesson I learnt in the USLS was that, circumstance is a powerful force, one that can define an individual regardless of his or her will to succeed.”
— Amanda Cacapava, Florida Atlantic University, US
