Forums & Dialogues
NUS Global Asia Forum
The ASEAN Forum seeks to engage future leaders in meaningful discussions where awareness in regional affairs, especially those regarding ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) can be built. It is hoped that through this Forum, participants can have their horizons broadened and convictions formed. The Foreign Policy Forum seeks to promote greater awareness on regional and international affairs. It also aims to cultivate among NUS students a greater understanding of and appreciation for Singapore’s foreign policy and the various challenges that the Republic faces in the past, present and future. In 2020, both forums were combined to form the NUS Global Asia Forum, which seeks to promote greater awareness on regional affairs.
The Director of NUS Global Asia Forum is in charge of this event.
Policy Dialogue Series
The NUSPA Policy Dialogue Series (also known as PDS), is a new initiative launched in 2020. The PDS is a unique break from past practices and traditional dialogues with large audiences. Rather than setting the parameters of the dialogue on a common theme or set of topics, the PDS looks at specific policies that are of general interest to the youth community in particular, and society in general. Each PDS session is open to a small but diverse group of student leaders as participants, who will take part in closed-door and focused group discussions. The PDS aims to invite policymakers and public servants specifically, beyond just political office holders, as guest speakers.
