To all HKU law students
I am writing on behalf of the Student Think Tank for Europe-Asia Relations (STEAR) to inform you about one of our upcoming events that may be of interest to your institution and we would be grateful if you could share this with your network should that be the case:
STEAR (www.stearthinktank.com) aims to be the first and leading youth policy institute strengthening relations and deepening cultural ties all over Europe and Asia.
We will be hosting our next STEAR Dialogue on the 30th of September, 12 noon (Central European Summer Time). The STEAR Dialogue is our event series format which invites high level speakers under the broad umbrella of international relations across Eurasia to engage with our youth audience in an interactive question-and-answer format. We will focus on more personal, experience-oriented and diverse themes including career development, advice for young people, culture, activism and more. This time, we’re in conversation with His Excellency Josef Rychtar, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Czech Republic to the Islamic Republic of Iran, who will share his personal insights and experiences in international diplomacy.
About Our Guest:
