The World Affairs Seminar (WAS) is a youth education organization committed to providing a forum for open discussion among delegates, speakers and attendees. The comments, views and opinions of presenters  and delegates are those of the speaker and do not represent an endorsement or approval of the World Affairs Seminar. Speakers and delegates are encouraged to discuss all manner of issues openly and honestly. WAS does not censure or take sides, but accepts a wide variety of viewpoints as valid and necessary to a healthy learning environment.  Any attempt to silence or discourage the free expression of ideas supporting any viewpoint by WAS participants is prohibited.
