A Thousand Small Sanities: The Moral Adventure of Liberalism
Monday, May 20, 2019, 8:00 AM to 9:15 AM
The crisis of democracy in our era has produced a crisis of faith in liberal institutions and, even worse, in liberal thought.

Is liberalism one of the great moral adventures in human history? In an age of autocracy, why do our lives depend on its continuation? (Public Affairs Program)
Adam Gopnik is an author and staff writer for The New Yorker, where he has been a contributor for over three decades.

Carnegie Council is convening a special evening panel and reception to explore what techniques China uses to influence democratic societies and what democracies can do to respond.

Freedom and reconciliation in the Christian context require a new way to see what binds us on earth. In this way, we will discuss how boundaries that are national, political, cultural, racial, and economic may not be from God but from how we restrict God-given freedom. The forum is absolutely free and open to anyone. Please feel free to join us this Sunday, June 23rd at 9:35am in the Gray Room downstairs in our Undercroft.

HOST Amanda Glassman, Executive Vice President, CEO of CGD Europe, and Senior Fellow, Center for Global Development
ABOUT THE EVENT Spending on health products tops $50 billion annually in just a subset of low- and middle-income countries. And a large share of health aid goes to the same use. But despite its importance for spending and health outcomes, the procurement of medicines and other health products remains a neglected health system function. On the eve of the high-level meeting, this networking and learning reception will highlight how more effective procurement can accelerate progress towards expanding access to medicines and other key health products. The reception will feature policymakers from around the world, discussing national and global challenges and opportunities on the path towards smarter procurement.
This event draws from the final report of CGD’s Working Group on the Future of Global Health Procurement, which found that tackling inefficient procurement practices can help stretch scarce health resources further and accelerate progress toward the health-related Sustainable Development Goals. The Working Group offered four actionable recommendations to elevate procurement as an essential health system function.
Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.

Aligning Corporations with the Sustainable Development Goals (Columbia International Investment Conference)
Date: September 25, 2019, 9:00am–5:00pm REGISTERED
Interest in the private sector’s responsibilities (as well as opportunities) with respect to sustainable development and human rights has exploded in recent years, reflected in the rise of environment, social, and governance (ESG) investment considerations, as well as in the growth of voluntary initiatives and mandatory sustainability reporting by companies. Yet real questions remain as to whether this increased recognition of non-financial variables has resulted in improved outcomes on the ground. The 14th Annual Columbia International Investment Conference, organized by CCSI, aims to clearly and rigorously define SDG-aligned corporate activity. The conference will take stock of what has already been achieved in terms of identifying relevant metrics and indicators, and in terms of ensuring meaningful reporting and assessment in accordance with these indicators, so that new voluntary and regulatory efforts can build on optimal approaches and fill gaps where they exist. Speakers include :
Minister Isabella Lövin, Swedish Minister for Environment and Climate,
Fiona Reynolds, CEO of UN Principles for Responsible Investment,
Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the Center for Sustainable Development, Columbia University, and
Tim Mohin, Chief Executive of the Global Reporting Initiative. Registration is free but required.

Panelists include UNGA President Maria Fernanda Espinosa Garcés, Ambassadors Francisco Duarte Lopes and Amal Mudallali, Co-Convenor of Indigenous Peoples Major Group for Sustainable Development Joan Carling, and ICC Secretary General John Denton, among other notable guests. Registration is available on our website free and open to the public.

Good Economics for Hard Times REGISTERED
Date: Monday November 25th, 2019 Time: 6:00PM - 8:00PM (Doors open at 5:30PM)
Venue: NYU Silver Center for Arts and Sciences Hemmerdinger Hall 100 Washington Square East New York, NY, 10003
Figuring out how to deal with today's critical economic problems is perhaps the great challenge of our time. Issues like immigration and inequality, globalization and technological disruption, slowing growth, accelerating climate change, etc. are all sources of great anxiety across the world. Yet the resources to address these challenges are there, but what we lack are the ideas that will help us jump the wall of disagreement and distrust that divides us. In this event, Esther Duflo will introduce Good Economics for Hard Times, a new book co-authored with Abhijit V. Banerjee, where they draw on the best recent economics to demonstrate how to think about these problems differently, and present intelligent, daring solutions based on sound research into real-life situations, towards a society built on compassion and respect. About the Authors: Esther Duflo is the Abdul Latif Jameel Professor of Poverty Alleviation and Development Economics in the Department of Economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Abhijit V. Banerjee is the Ford Foundation International Professor of Economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Their previous book together is Poor Economics: A Radical Rethinking of the Way to Fight Global Poverty, winner of the 2011 Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award. They are both recipients of the 2019 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences along with Michael Kremer. Founded in 2006, the Development Research Institute (DRI) is currently home to a growing team of researchers and students. Through our work, we seek to expand the number and diversity of serious commentators on the state of foreign aid and development. Our ultimate goal is to have a positive impact on the lives of the poor, who deserve the benefit of high-quality, clear-eyed, hard-headed economic research applied to the problems of world poverty.
