The Pacific Islands Leadership Program with Taiwan (PILP) is a new initiative designed to provide opportunities to enhance the leadership capacities of individuals in the Pacific Islands region and build a network of young leaders who will contribute to lasting people-to-people relationships across the Pacific, Asia, and United States.  Participants will spend two months engaging in experiential learning exercises at the East-West Center’s campus in Hawai‘i, followed by a month of field study in Taipei at the Taiwan Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Institute of Diplomacy and International Affairs. The program curriculum includes such topics as applied leadership skills, future scenario planning, social entrepreneurship and risk analysis.  It is intended to strengthen participants’ knowledge and understanding of key economic, social, political, health, educational and environmental issues affecting the region, and enable them to cultivate the leadership skills, approaches and networks to make meaningful contributions to the region throughout their careers.
