The EAI held the EPIK Young Leaders Conference on August 14, 2012 under the theme of “Drawing New Lines: Values, Institutions, and Governance”. Launched in 2010, EPIK Young Leaders Conference is an annual event organized by EPIK Spiders, an academic circle created by EAI intern graduates. EAI arranged this essay competition 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 two sessions, the presenters shared their ideas on various topics including international politics, security, economics, and business management as well as to ponder their roles in this ever changing global community. All papers presented including the prize-winning thesis will be posted on the EAI website shortly.

Theme

"Drawing New Lines: Values, Institutions, and Governance"

The world is moving along a dynamic path of change. Traditional boundaries of values, institutions and governance are ever more challenged by new ideas that emerge not only through technological innovation, but also from socio-political development and other unforeseen channels of change.

In this light, the EPIK Young Leaders Conference 2012 calls for student papers that can draw new lines to better understand the continuous transformation of our global environment. To this end, participants can choose one or more of the issue areas that are listed below.

- Politics & International Security
- Economy & Development
- Technology & Culture
