Nearly two decades have passed since an American military
helicopter made one final airlift of refugees from the roof of
the U.S. Embassy in Saigon. That single event, seared into the
minds of so many here and abroad, closed a dark and divisive
chapter in the history of the United States and Vietnam, and in
doing so, seemed to cement a barrier between the two countries.
Today, that barrier is beginning to crack as individuals,
companies and agencies in both countries have begun to reach out
to one another. Hans and Marilies Schoepflin are two such
individuals. No strangers to walls, they came to America in 1975
from a Germany still divided between East and West. In the
Schoepflin Investment Company offices in La Jolla, a large,
graffiti-stained chunk of the Berlin Wall sits on display as a
reminder that even the most seemingly impregnable barriers can
come down.
The Schoepflins, in their quest to help breach the barriers
between the Vietnamese and American people, have made a generous
gift to the University of California, San Diego's Graduate School
of International Relations and Pacific Studies (IR/PS), to
establish the Vietnam-Pacific project, a major teaching, research
and exchange program. The project will also incorporate
Vietnamese language teaching at IR/PS and the development of a
lecture series and working papers that will be of value to
academics, policymakers and members of the business community.
"This project would not have been possible were it not for
this tremendous show of support by the Schoepflins," said IR/PS
Dean Peter Gourevitch.
Liem Le and Philip Lu, two Vietnamese-Americans
studying at IR/PS, have already benefitted from the Schoepflin's
generosity. They have been awarded the first Schoepflin
Fellowships as part of the Vietnam-Pacific Project. As a result,
these one-time refugees, born during the Vietnam War, have
returned to the land of their birth, where they are establishing
contacts and gathering information on behalf of the project. They
will return from Vietnam this fall to resume their second year of
study at IR/PS, and continue to assist the project.
The Vietnam-Pacific Project also benefits from IR/PS's
participation in a Ford Foundation fellowship program that brings
Vietnamese students to the United States. Ford has supported a
number of Vietnamese nationals who have taken part in IR/PS's
International Career Associates Program (ICAP) for mid-career
professionals from other countries. Two officials from the
Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs graduated from ICAP in
June, and two other Vietnamese professionals enrolled in the
program in July.
Donors like the Schoepflins believe that such American and
Vietnamese student exchanges are a key to reconciliation
between the two countries. Their gift also helps support one of
the Vietnamese ICAP students.
"In today's world, there still exists an immense amount of
resentment between nations," said Hans Schoepflin. "For many,
it's difficult to forget the hatred of yesterday." This, he
says, is particularly true of American-Vietnamese relations, for
which a "healing process" is needed.
According to the Schoepflins, they were drawn to the idea of
helping this healing process along by endowing a university-based
project that stresses student and faculty exchange and teaching
opportunities for a generation just coming of age.
"We believe that if an understanding is ever to be
accomplished, it will be through young people," Hans Schoepflin
said. "They are less burdened with the past and more often
willing to seek respect and friendship.  I hope that the
Vietnam-Pacific Project will allow trust to grow between the two
countries by facilitating a dialogue and sharing knowledge."
IR/PS Professor Stephan Haggard, coordinator of the Vietnam-
Pacific Project, said the project seeks not just to foster a
greater understanding between the two countries, but also to
explore the economic reform process now underway in Vietnam.
According to Haggard, a political scientist with an
expertise in economic development in East Asia, the U.S. embargo
against Vietnam is still in place and many contentious issues
between the two governments remain. Nevertheless, says Haggard,
increasing numbers of Americans and Vietnamese are planning for
the future beyond the embargo. Scores of American public and
private agencies have already opened offices in Vietnam or are
applying to do so.
"Vietnam is in the early stages of a process visible in
other socialist countries:  the transition from a centrally
planned economy to a market economy.  This is a road that China,
Eastern Europe and Russia have begun to traverse," explained
Haggard. "One of our aims with the Vietnam-Pacific Project,
is to more closely examine this reform process in Vietnam."
At 70 million people and expanding rapidly, Vietnam is the
fifth most populated country in Asia. Haggard said that because
of this rapid expansion and Vietnam's strategic proximity to
other rapidly growing nations of Southeast Asia, the country has
the potential for explosive growth. Harnessing that growth in a
positive way depends upon three factors: normalization of the
country's external political relations; continued and deepening
political and economic reforms; and advancement of the skills of
the Vietnamese work force.
"The Vietnam-Pacific Project can contribute to all three of
these objectives," said Haggard, since a deeper understanding
between the two countries would speed the processes of reform and
normalization, while research results could aid Vietnamese
policymakers in advancing the country's socioeconomic conditions.
In addition to the Schoepflins, R.B. Woolley of La Jolla and
the Ford Foundation have provided financial assistance to the
Vietnam-Pacific Project. According to IR/PS Dean Peter
Gourevitch, support from other corporations and foundations is
also being sought to extend the life of the project, which is now
funded for one year. In July 1994, the project leaders will
issue a report on its findings and activities.
IR/PS is the only professional school of international
affairs in the University of California system. Unique in its
focus on the Pacific Rim region, the school provides graduate
professional training for leadership positions in business,
government and academia. It is the only institution of
its kind in the United States devoted solely to the study of
countries of the Pacific Rim.
