U.S.-Taiwan Next Generation Working Group
Program Expectations & Commitments
Program Participants must:
- Commit to attend all three meetings as follows*:
*Note: Other opportunities to convene, publish, and/or participate in public engagements may arise throughout the program period. Though these opportunities are encouraged, they are not a requirement of the program.
Submit a 2-3 page reflection following each of the three meetings.
Develop a short policy paper (3-5 pages) on a topic of the applicant’s choosing as it concerns U.S.-Taiwan relations. Participants will be expected to submit their policy papers for publication, and will be encouraged to seek out opportunities for publication/public appearances in newspapers, newsrooms, and/or with other media outlets. Participants will also be encouraged to develop longer papers in a format useful to their careers if they wish to do so. For example, a political scientist might write a research article for publication, then create a 3-5 page version that would be suitable for publication in Foreign Policy or a similar outlet. A policy professional might write a policy report, including a 3-5 page memo or executive summary. A journalist might do a long-form article, with a 3-5 page version. These papers will be developed over the course of the three-year period under the guidance of the Senior Advisors and submitted to TECO at the end of the program.
