Open to US teachers and high school students, this US State Department-funded youth leadership program takes place at the East-West Center in Honolulu and in Cambodia (July 11-August 7, 2011). The program will engage participants in examining the role of the media in fostering understanding (or distortion) of historical and contemporary issues, including the Khmer Rouge history, and the media's power as a catalyst for social change and as a tool for advancing public dialogue. Participants will work with journalists and other media specialists, learn about the Khmer Rouge tribunal firsthand from UN and Cambodian officials responsible for its implementation, explore issues of justice and forgiveness from the perspectives of Buddhist monks, and participate in a community project serving disadvantaged children and youth. Travel to/from Honolulu, international travel, hotel/housing, two meals per day, and all other program-related costs are covered by the program.
