Join the Institute for Global Leadership for its 33rd Annual Norris and Margery Bendetson EPIIC International Symposium on “Is the Liberal World Order Ending?” from March 1-3, 2018 on the Tufts Medford campus.

The symposium, organized by the students in the 2017-18 EPIIC colloquium, will be three days of far-reaching discussions on issues critical to understanding the challenges facing the liberal world order, from the complexities of the changing nature of economies to the rise of nationalism and populism; from cross-border challenges to the rise of illiberalism; from the current and future role of the United States to the rise of China and Russia; from the challenges of human rights protection and the responsibility to protect to nuclear security and proliferation.

It will feature keynote addresses by the Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations Amina J Mohammed and by President Emeritus of the University of Ottawa Allan Rock.  Other speakers include former Foreign and Defense Minister of Poland Radoslaw Sikorski and former Special Envoy and Coordinator for Threat Reduction Programs in the Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation at the U.S. State Department Amb. Bonnie Jenkins.  Both Rock and Sikorski will be receiving the Dr. Jean Mayer Global Citizenship Award and Feodor Voytolovsky, director of IMEMO of the Russian Academy of Sciences, will receive the Robert and JoAnn Bendetson Public Diplomacy Award.
