Guam - This evening, the University of Guam's Division of Social Work and the Guahan Coalition for Peace and Justice are holding a public forum on self-determination. Panelists include UOG president Dr. Robert Underwood and Attorney Leevin Camacho along with visiting United Nations advisor Dr. Carlyle Corbin, who spoke with some of the island's schoolchildren earlier this morning.

Corbin told KUAM News, "It's a matter of looking at different activities of self determination throughout the world given that Guam is going through its process of self-determination and preparing the education program on the different options, so it's useful to know what might also happening in other places."

Corbin, who is originally from the U.S. Virgin Islands, adds that being from an island territory, it's important to ensure that our political evolution continues. He says self-determination helps the people determine their own political, economic, social and cultural development.

The forum continues tonight at the UOG Class Lecture Hall.
