The EAI played host for the 2010 EPIK Young Leaders Conference on August 17, 2010. Our goal in this conference was to provide a platform for talented students from home and abroad, who have different majors and backgrounds to develop not only their comprehensive knowledge but also global mind and community spirit. During the four presentation sessions, the six presenters shared their ideas on various topics such as international politics, security, economics, and business management as well as to ponder their roles in this ever changing global community.

From this year, the EPIK Young Leaders award will be given annually in recognition and celebration of the accomplishments in thessis competition. This year, awards were made to Yoon Jin Lee, Mimi Ahn, Shin Woo Kang and YunSuk Chung for their invaluable contributions to the first EPIK Conference. All papers presented including the prize-winning thesis will be posted on the EAI website shortly.
