The 53rd International Affairs Symposium examines the tensions of identity in global conflicts today. The symposium, structured as a series of six debates, will explore the complexities of ethnic conflict and partition, western intervention and extremism, state surveillance, the promotion of international religious freedom, foreign fighters, and the roots of conflict in the 21st century.

The Lewis & Clark College International Affairs Symposium is one of the most prestigious events within the Oregon academic and civic communities. It has been highly acclaimed by the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Chronicle of Higher Education. It is also the oldest student-run symposium in the United States.

The focus of the Symposium is controversy, emphasizing the confrontation of opposing viewpoints. It is our hope that through debate our audience develops a more thorough understanding of the complexities surrounding international dilemmas. Organized entirely by students, this event concentrates on the most pressing themes and topics in international relations today.
