Our Annual Conferences
Platform I: The HCAP Harvard Conference:
The annual HCAP Harvard Conference is held each Winter at Harvard and constitutes the first of two exchange platforms. This conference forms the cornerstone of HCAP’s mission by inviting delegates from all six partner schools to gather with Harvard members for a week of academic, cultural, and social exchange.
Platform II: The HCAP Asia Conferences
The second platform is substantiated by the collection of six conferences in Asia in March during Spring break, when Harvard students travel to reunite with the international delegates to strengthen existing bonds of friendship while gaining first-hand exposure to Asia.
The philosophy behind our double platform model is grounded in our belief that the current issues that confront the international community demand both multilateral (as practiced during the January conference) and bilateral (in the spirit of our March conferences in Asia) frameworks and approaches. We trust that this organizational model, while most notably familiarizing each Harvard member with one particular country, will simultaneously demonstrate the necessity of achieving a degree of proficiency with international perspectives on a level that transcends the bilateral.
