Organised by NTU-USP and supported by Temasek Foundation, the Youth Regional Affairs Dialogue 2022 is a platform for university students in Asia to enhance their leadership skills and broaden their understanding of geopolitics.

Dialogue Objectives

Aspiring youth leaders will have an opportunity to develop an appreciation of Asia’s interwoven geopolitical structure through discussions on economics, politics and society, and foster an understanding of governance and policies across Asia as they build friendships through cross-cultural exchanges.
