  • 31st Annual EPIIC Symposium: "Europe in Turmoil"

    Feb 17, 2016

    Join the Institute for Global Leadership as it presents the 31st Annual Norris and Margery Bendetson EPIIC International Symposium on “Europe in Turmoil" from February 17-21, 2016. Enclosed please find our initial profile and schedule.

    The forum will begin on February 17th, with a cultural evening featuring Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, Ladino, Algerian Rai, and Roma music, poetry of Nobel Laureate Czeslaw Milosz, and the work of VII photographers Ron Haviv and Gary Knight.

    The 18th will feature a professional workshop on Europe’s security environment with distinguished policy experts, senior military officers, intelligence and cyber security experts, counter terrorism analysts, investigative journalists, and senior academics, and is open to you, but to the general community only by specific invitation.

    The symposium itself will be four days (18th-21st) of public debate and discussion with more than 60 practitioners, academics, policymakers, journalists and activists, on topics such as Europe’s identity, its confrontation with Russia, the future of NATO, the transatlantic partnership, the challenges of the current migration crisis, European society and the roles of religion and ethnicity, questions of political and economic integration, terrorism and security, collective memory, case studies on corruption, crime, and governance, and the philosophical and humanistic underpinnings of the European Project.

    An important part of the forum will be expert-led breakout sessions. We will convene informal seminars on such themes as Catalan and Basque secession, The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership; the emergence of right-wing parties; Brexit (British Exit); the impact of austerity policies and the future of the EuroZone; peacekeeping lessons on the 20th Anniversary of Srebrenica, and working sessions on developing a hackathon for refugee relief applications.

    Our students will present on hybrid warfare in the Baltics; the Russian-EU relationship, human trafficking, and the impact of comparative migration policies on the border less Schengen Area.

    This year’s symposium is dedicated to the memory of Professor Stanley Hoffmann and is supported in part by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. It is held in collaboration with the Council for European Studies at Columbia University, the Center for the Study of Europe at Boston University and the Student European Conference of the Fletcher School and Harvard’s Kennedy and Business Schools.

    In attendance will also be international university delegations and faculty from Belgium, Brazil, China, Denmark, Ecuador, Germany, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, and Spain, as well as delegations from Stanford University, the U.S. Military Academy and the U.S. Naval Academy.

  • An Evening with Jose Antonio Vargas

    Mar 2, 2016, 7pm EST

    Jose Antonio Vargas takes audiences deeper into his story, sharing details of his journey to America from the Philippines as a child; his journey through America as an immigration reform activist; and his journey inward as he re-connects with his mother, whom he hadn't seen in person in over 20 years. With anecdotes from both his own story and the struggles of countless other undocumented immigrants in America, Vargas poignantly explores one of the most divisive questions facing our country today: how do you define “American”?
