FAS Abroad: Seoul



By: Putt Rodchareon '16

"On September 15-18, I was honored to go to an international leadership conference in South Korea. Leaders from around the world met together at this summit in order to explore avenues to prevent warfare. Speakers include state leaders from Russia, Chile, Argentina, and Switzerland, for example. I was able to participate in small discussions with Vice Prime Minister of Russia, Alexander Rutsoky, specifically discussing on how religious and ethnic differences tend to spark violence in Eastern Europe. All in all, it was a memorable trip for me, and one that I would never forget."
