You never know what a guest speaker might say, especially on a topic like “Sex Education.” Are we talking about China’s one child policy, teenage pregnancy in the U.S., the fact that there was “no sex” in the Soviet Union, or tourists finding racy items for sale in vending machines in Japan?

We will look at this concept from all angles from a social and cultural point of view, in a multi-language setting. Topics will include the media’s impact on our views of sex, how sex is taught in schools, child marriage in some countries, as well as other sensitive issues.

There will be two panel discussion sessions simulating an international conference. Each delegate’s comments will be interpreted consecutively by MIIS student interpreters. Each session will last approximately two hours with a short break in between.
