The Liberal State in Retreat? Globalization, Migration, and the Rise of Global Populism
6:30 PM - 7:45 PM

Downtown

The Liberal State in Retreat? Globalization, Migration, and the Rise of Global Populism

Tuesday, March 21, 6.30 - 7.45 pm

 

Liberalism in the West is under siege. Brexit, the electoral success of Donald Trump, the increasing strength of the Front National in France, the AfD in Germany, Syriza in Greece, and the Freedom Party in Austria -- the world is witnessing a populist groundswell that has found passionate expression in parties and movements on both sides of the political spectrum. While ideologically eclectic, these parties are united in their distinctly illiberal (indeed often explicitly anti-liberal) agendas. Leftist populist parties remain socially liberal while rejecting a highly integrated neoliberal world order that they argue has not delivered significant benefits to the working classes. Populist parties on the right, on the other hand, blend concerns about economic displacement and rapid social change with their own nationalist, anti-globalization, anti-immigrant, Islamophobic, socially conservative, (white) identity message, and in so doing implicitly reject socially liberal values such as universal human rights, gender equality, and multiculturalism. Join CGA Clinical Assistant Professor Sylvia Maier to discuss the growing support for these parties and what this signals for the future of liberal democracies in Europe and elsewhere.

Evaluating the Impact of the Trump Administration on the Nonprofit Sector: Effective Response to Policy Changes?

Presented by the Heyman Program in Philanthropy and Fundraising

Wednesday, March 22, 6:30 pm to 7:45 pm


Dan Cardinali, president and CEO of Independent Sector, recently stated that giving in America is a powerful civic act.   As the nation prepares for new leadership in Washington, the nonprofit sector is examining possible governmental changes that may affect charitable giving and delivery of vital public services: Will eliminating or limiting major deductions increase charitable giving?   How can nonprofit organizations fill the gap of service delivery if there are cuts in current government spending? Will individuals curtail their giving if they perceive instability in the financial markets? If the Trump administration favors isolationism, how will international organizations carry out their vital work?

Join Jason Lee, J.D., Interim President and CEO of the International Association of Fundraising Professionals and a panel of nonprofit leaders to discuss their ideas, concerns, and projections about charitable giving in 2017 and the nonprofit sectors commitment to serving the public good under the Trump Administration.

This event is CANCELLED and will be rescheduled.

If you sense that you may not be ready for college or you are considering a less traditional path to a college education because of your grades or your performance on standardized testing, the NYUSPS Access Program may provide the alternative you seek. The 10-month NYU School of Professional Studies (NYUSPS) Access Program is designed for graduating high school seniors who want to sharpen their academic and career-focused skills, while deciding what comes next. This unique learning opportunity allows them to increase their readiness for college and/or the workforce through a curated set of courses that explores a professional field of their choosing and reinforces core academic competencies such as data literacy, and written and verbal communication. Cohort-based advisories led by an academic coach support students’ program success and help them to navigate the exciting transition that lies ahead. Upon successful completion of the Access program, students will have earned 24 college credits. Upon joining NYUSPS Access, students are also conditionally admitted into their choice of an associate’s degree program in Business, Healthcare Management or Information Systems. Those who are in good academic standing at the end of the NYUSPS Access program will have the option to continue their studies and complete their associate’s degree through the NYUSPS McGhee Division for Undergraduate Studies. Classes are held Friday (afternoons) and Saturday (mornings and afternoons).

To apply, you must be a high school senior scheduled to graduate high school in Spring 2017, and you must live in the NYC metropolitan area. NYUSPS Access is a non-residential program. Learn more: sps.nyu.edu/access

CALA Foreign Film Screening: HANNAH ARENDT
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Off-site

In our increasingly fractured world, multiple perspectives are more important than ever, and women’s views of our existence must reach more screens. The CALA Spring 2017 Foreign Film Series: A View from a Broad features the works of six international female filmmakers, ranging from Iciar Bollain’s Flores De Otro Mundo (Flowers from Another World, 1999), about three single women searching for love in the patriarchal society of rural Spain to Huang Shuqin’s 人鬼情  (Woman Demon Human, 1987)  about a young actress in China who, as she becomes more famous, demands to play traditional “male” roles. The series also includes Margareth von Trotta’s Hannah Arendt (2012), a portrait of the political theorist and influential thinker during her controversial coverage of Nazi officer Adolf Eichmann’s war crimes trial at Nuremberg for The New Yorker. Pam Katz, who wrote the screenplay, will present the film.

In Print -- The Aid Lab: Understanding Bangladesh’s Unexpected Success
6:30 PM - 7:45 PM

Downtown

In Print: Naomi Hossain -- The Aid Lab: Understanding Bangladesh’s Unexpected Success 

 

Monday, March 27, 6.30 - 7.45 pm


Development aid often gets bad press because it is seen as ineffective in lifting countries out of poverty.  In The Aid Lab, Naomi Hossain (Institute of Development Studies, Sussex, UK) argues that aid can work, even in extremely unpromising contexts.  The Aid Lab examines the extraordinary case of Bangladesh. Dealt a weak hand in natural resources and geopolitical significance, wounded by war and famine, Bangladesh has transitioned into a canny and adaptable player in the global economy.  It pioneered the use of micro-finance and was the earliest developing country committed to addressing women’s needs as part of poverty reduction.  This is not the story of a poster child for neoliberalism, but rather of a pragmatic state selectively engaging with donors and global markets while building a social compact to mitigate vulnerability. Join John Gershman, Clinical Professor of Public Practice at NYU Wagner, for a conversation with Hossain on what other developing countries can learn from Bangladesh.

Fueling our Future: The Geopolitics and Economics of Energy in the 21st Century

China and India: Managing the domestic energy boom


Tuesday, April 4, 6.30 – 7.45 pm

 

The International Energy Agency (IEA) forecasts that India will become the engine of global growth in oil demand by the mid-2020s as its economy grows and its population becomes the biggest in the world. China is already a big consumer, taking the number 2 spot behind the United States in global oil demand. Over the past decade, it has accounted for 60% of the world’s growth in oil consumption. China and India are not only consuming more oil but also are big players in the natural gas and nuclear energy markets. China is also now the world’s lead investor in renewable energy. While both countries focus on meeting domestic energy demand, they struggle with increasingly dangerous levels of pollution. This panel will examine the geopolitics of China and India’s energy choices and challenges, and how the two largest populations in the world will manage demand for energy and environmental health.

THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL: ITS FUTURE AND GLOBAL IMPLICATIONS
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL: ITS FUTURE AND GLOBAL IMPLICATIONS


Wednesday, April 12, 12 – 2 pm

 

The “Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) Regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Nuclear Program” was an international agreement reached July 2015 between the permanent members of the UN Security Council (China, France, Russia, the UK, and the US) plus Germany and Iran to cap Tehran’s capabilities to build nuclear weapons. Supporters of the agreement hailed it as an effective way of curtailing Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Opponents saw it as being ineffective while also allowing Iran greater power in the region. The Trump administration has been largely critical of the deal and has avowed to either tear it up or implement it more vigorously. What are the likely repercussions of the Trump administration’s stated plan, not only on Washington’s relations with Iran, but also on other parties to the agreement? Is this likely to lead Iran to develop nuclear weapons? Will it increase the prospects of conflict in the region?  CGA Visiting Scholar WPS Sidhu examines these questions and others with a distinguished panel of experts.

 

Panelists:

Patrick Clawson, Morningstar senior fellow and director of research, Washington Institute for Near East Policy Robert Einhorn, former Secretary of State's Special Advisor for Nonproliferation and Arms Control; Senior Fellow, Brookings

Suzanne Di Maggio, Director and Senior Fellow, the New America Foundation

THE GOLDEN AGE OF DISINFORMATION: WILL IT DESTROY DEMOCRACY?
6:30 PM - 7:45 PM

THE GOLDEN AGE OF DISINFORMATION: WILL IT DESTROY DEMOCRACY?

Tuesday, April 18, 6.30 – 7.45 pm

In 2017, the world enters a new age of international relations in which standards of diplomacy and protocol will be discarded. Widely accepted norms are being rejected, and facts are considered subjective. News is suspect, intelligence is rebuffed, and our political systems are now fair game for adversarial manipulation. Technology and capitalism have created a perfect storm: the golden age of disinformation. How has global media convergence contributed to the current climate? Has the Internet been a net positive or negative so far for democracy? What hazards does such disinformation pose for the advancement of our understanding, especially as a leading nation in science and technology? Can measures, technical or otherwise, be taken to mitigate the effects of disinformation? Join CGA Futures Lab founder and Good Judgment Project Superforecaster Regina Joseph for a conversation on these and other implications of the emergence of disinformation.
