This year’s series of ALYAS was special as it was open mainly for the growing and diverse community of program’s alumni. They had a chance to participate on closed discussions with experts such as Dr. Michito Tsuruoka from Keio University in Japan who spoke about security in Northeast Asia, Dr. Chiang Chia-Ming from Soochow University in Taiwan talking about democratic transition in Taiwan, or Dr. Jagannath Panda from Institute of Defense Studies and Analysis in New Delhi, who focused on Sino-Indian relations.
