Event Image The Life of the World-Class Athlete: Three Generations of Giants Greats
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

NYU Event Space

NYU Sports and Society Presents

The Life of the World-Class Athlete: Three Generations of Giants Greats

First of a Sports and Society Series

NYU Sports and Society offers a unique opportunity to spend an evening with a trio of beloved, current and former NY Giants, who will discuss what it’s like to play for this legendary team and how their experiences have affected them personally and professionally.

Today’s athletes live in a world where every comment they make is instantly available worldwide—immediate fodder for social media, the 24-hour-a-day sports news cycle, and office gossip. As invincible as athletes appear on the playing field, they often experience a sense of vulnerability and exposure. Harry Carson, Victor Cruz, and Michael Strahan will provide an insider’s look at their lives and careers; the pressures, the challenges, the bonding, and the expectations of them as leaders and role models for sports fan across the country.

Moderated by NYU University professor, director of Public Dialogues at NYU-SCPS, and NYU Sports and Society founder and chairman Arthur R. Miller, the panel will explore how these three world-class athletes deal with the difficult decisions and challenging circumstances that are the result of their extraordinary gifts, remarkable careers, and resultant fame. This spirited dialogue will focus on how three generations of Super Bowl champions strive to build a lasting legacy of integrity, leadership, and sportsmanship.

Seats are offered on a first come, first serve basis until we reach capacity.  Doors open at 6:15pm.

Tuesday, March 11, 6.30-7.45 p.m.

Currently, all ICC cases in the Hague focus on the African continent. In Fall 2013, the African Union discussed the ICC as part of an extraordinary summit, in which members concluded that no charges should be brought against any current head of an African state. But would this measure open the way for African heads of state to commit war crimes with impunity? Join CGA and ICTJ for a conversation on how the ICC and African Union can move forward, and what the AU position means for effective prosecutions within Africa and elsewhere.

Seats are offered on a first come, first serve basis until we reach capacity.

With seven billion people in the world (nine billion projected by 2050), many of whom live in rapidly developing countries, the need for modern technologies with their attendant energy demands is increasing at an exponential rate. Will it be possible to provide sufficient energy for this generation and the next? How will the energy race change global economies and politics?

CLEAN ENERGY FOR ALL: TECHNOLOGY, POLICY, AND FINANCE 
Tuesday, April 1, 6.30-7.45 p.m.


The global renewable energy revolution is upon us. There are many exciting developments in the sector including initiatives to decentralize energy production. These developments are critical for global efforts to decarbonize and also provide a way to provide clean energy services to the hundreds of millions who are in “energy poverty.” Hear from several top experts in the field about the initiatives in technology, policy, and finance that are pushing clean energy forward.

Moderator:

William Hewitt has been an environmental professional and activist for nearly 30 years. He is a writer and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at New York University’s Center for Global Affairs, teaching graduate and continuing education classes on energy and the environment, global climate change, and clean tech.  He was the Director of Public Affairs for the NYC regional office of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation for 11 years. He was the blogger on climate change and sustainability for the Foreign Policy Association for five years and now has his own blog, “A Newer World.” Hewitt has been involved with two Presidential campaigns (Bruce Babbitt and Bill Bradley) and two NYC Mayoral races (David Dinkins and Mark Green), working primarily on environmental issues. He was an activist leader with the Sierra Club in New York working on urban issues and acid rain.

His book, A Newer World – Politics, Money, Technology, and What’s Really Being Done to Solve the Climate Crisis, published by the University Press of New England late in 2012, has been endorsed by Bill McKibben and Elizabeth Kolbert, and has had several very favorable reviews. He has written articles and book reviews, as well as op-ed pieces and letters, on subjects relating to sustainability and international relations for DeSmogBlog, the American Planning Association, the Foreign Policy Association, Nature Reports Climate Change, Grist, the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, the New Yorker, the NY Times, and Financial Times, among others.

Vignesh was also previously a management consultant with McKinsey & Company, in a variety of industries.

IN PRINT - Shadi Hamid, Temptations of Power: Islamists and Illiberal Democracy in a New Middle East
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Downtown

IN PRINT WITH JAMES F. HOGE, JR. 
This series features James F. Hoge, Jr., senior advisor, Teneo Intelligence; chairman, Human Rights Watch; and CGA advisory board member, in conversation with leading journalists and authors.

Books are available for sale following the event.

TEMPTATIONS OF POWER: ISLAMISTS AND ILLIBERAL
DEMOCRACY IN A NEW MIDDLE EAST
Monday, April 7, 6.30–7.45 p.m.

What if majorities, working through the democratic process, decide they would rather not accept gender equality and other human rights norms that Western democracies take for granted? The Arab uprisings of 2011 swept the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist parties into power. Since then, one question has been on everyone’s mind: what do Islamists really want? While the 2013 coup and the subsequent crackdown were a devastating blow for the Islamist “project,” in countries as diverse as Tunisia, Libya, Syria, Egypt, and Yemen, Islamist groups will remain an important force whether in the ranks of opposition or the halls of power. Drawing from interviews with figures like ousted Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi, Hamid’s account serves as an essential compass for those trying to understand where the region’s varied Islamist groups have come from, and where they might be headed.

Seats are offered on a first come, first serve basis until we reach capacity.
