DEN's International Student Conference

Recently, we had the privilege of participating in the DEN (Democratic Education Network) held at the University of Westminster in the vibrant city of London. The conference provided an immersive and intellectually stimulating environment where students from diverse backgrounds converged to discuss global issues and share their research on many different topics.

DEN Conference this year brought together students from different universities, each with a passion to delve deeper into the intricate workings of the world. One of the conference’s highlights was the opportunity to present our research. ‘Discourse on The Golden Land and Thai foreign affairs’. Describe how the word ‘Suvarnabhumi’ or ‘Golden Land’ used to describe the area’s geography has developed into a context of international relations that affects Thai foreign affairs throughout history.

The challenge is not only for us to deliver the presentation to our new friends but also for us to work on ourselves to be able to do so; we have to work on our self-assurance, build confidence for each other, and a lot of preparation as English is not our first language.

The conference provided a platform for students to share their unique perspectives, exchange ideas, and receive constructive feedback. Presenting our research in such a supportive environment boosted our confidence and broadened our understanding of different approaches to different topics.

Being held in the heart of London, the conference also provided a chance to explore the city’s rich historical and cultural heritage. We also had the opportunity to visit the iconic landmarks of London. These experiences further enriched our understanding of the history of the world capital.

The events also offered great networking opportunities. Enabling us to connect with students and academics from around the world. These connections brought us remarkable experiences and friendships that will last even though this conference has ended.

We want to thank Dr. Farhang Morady for this invaluable opportunity. Thank you for your trust and support throughout our time in London. This will remain an exceptional experience and memory in our hearts.

Likewise, attending the DEN Conference in London was an unforgettable experience that deepened our passion for further education. As we reflect on our time at the conference, we are grateful for the knowledge gained, the relationships formed, and the inspiration received.
