HCAP 2016 Conference:

The Effect of Culture and Policy in a Globalized World

Harvard Conference: January 16th – January 24th, 2016

Spring Conferences: March 12th – March 20th, 2016


We are proud to announce that the theme of HCAP 2016 is

Equality, Tolerance and Freedom: The Effect of Culture and Policy in a Globalized World.

Social inequality is an ever present issue in the lives of people around the world. However, differing social structures and cultural norms specific to each society present unique variations to this ubiquitous issue. This cross cultural phenomenon of social inequality is the theme of HCAP’s 13th conference.

We will tackle issues ranging from education, to global health, to racial inequality. Disparities in these and other relevant fields arise from numerous factors including complex intergroup relationships, cultural norms, and de jure implementation. While these issues manifest themselves in different ways across the globe, their relevance transcends geographic borders. It is only through our understanding of these issues on a global scale that may we progress, not as a singular country or race, but as an international community.

Beyond comprehending the complex societal values and relationships in various parts of the globe, we challenge delegates to understand the difference between equality and justice. The aim of the conference is not limited to shedding greater light on these issues, but expands to motivate and inspire us all to challenge the status quo.
