The Future is Global: Role of The New School?
April 16, 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM

The future of the world will be increasingly ‘global’. Change will not be a homogeneous linear trend of increasing integration but rather, globalization will take multiple forms and proceed in different directions, generating different types of interactions and conflicts between peoples, geographies, politics, and societies. We are at a hinge moment. It is time for new thought and action, theory and praxis. What will be the role of The New School?
1:30 PM – Introduction by Tim Marshall
Roundtable with the Global Platform Committee:
Moderated by Sakiko Fukuda-Parr

Diana Ayton-Shenker on human rights
