Young Leaders Perspectives

The Young Leaders Program was established in 2004 to build cross-cultural experiences for young scholars and foreign policy professionals to improve policy analysis skills early in their careers. The program affords Young Leaders an unparalleled opportunity to network, observe the foreign-policy making process and voice their generation’s viewpoints within elite circles of policy specialists. They also get a chance to develop their own perspective and gain a deeper understanding of conflicts and issues in the Asia-Pacific region, all while learning how experts and leaders deal with these problems.

Founded in 1975, the Pacific Forum is a non-profit, foreign policy research institute based in Honolulu, Hawaii, that examines current and emerging issues in politics, security, economics and business. Its programs stimulate cooperative policies in the Indo-Pacific region through analysis and dialogue with leaders in the academic, government and corporate areas.
