GLOBAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM
As a part of Yale Day, Yale Model United Nations XLV will offer the Global Exchange Program for highly motivated and exceptional delegates on Friday, January 18, 2019. This program aims to help delegates grapple with major issues and fundamental leadership questions that they will face as the next generation of leaders. This half-day program will entail one master lecture and two seminar sessions, with options to partake in different workshops. Through this program, delegates will have the chance to work very closely with some of Yale’s most distinguished faculty members. Delegates selected for the Global Exchange program will also be invited to a private lunch with the program’s faculty following the session. In past years, we have had lecturers and faculty members like Charles Hill, John Roemer and Yuriy Sergeyev.
Theme: The Purpose of Protest
Civil disobedience plays a major role in forming the twists and turns of human history. To many, the right to petition is an integral aspect of their life. How have protests evolved in the last century? Has their very nature changed? How about the people that lead them? In this year’s Global Exchange Program, efforts are centered around not only understanding but harnessing the development of protest in order to more accurately comprehend the purpose of protest today.
