LATEST UPDATES FROM THE SEMINARS

Between September 2008 and June 2009, Fellows of the 2008 Class are breaking up into groups of 3 or 4  and travelling to Aspen, CO or Wye, MD to attend the 2nd seminar  entitled  The Great Values Seminar: Defining the Good Society. This seminar is a 5-day seminar in which the Fellows build their vision of “a good society” by reading, discussing, debating and relating the writings of a wide range of thinkers to their present-day conditions.  Thinkers include Plato, Aristotle, Rousseau, Hobbes, Lee Kwan Yew, Milton Friedman, Julius Nyerere, Rachel Carson, Ibn Khaldun, Simon Bolivar and others.  The Fellows share their personal thoughts on the proper role of government in society as well as on the sorts of trade-offs they are willing to accept in the name of economic growth and social stability.

The 3rd Seminar that the Fellows will be attending is entitled Leading in an Era of Globalization and will be taking place in Rwanda at the Serena Hotel, Lake Kivu from July 10th  through July 14th. This seminar is a  4-day seminar in which the Fellows explore the economic, political, scientific, cultural and ethical dimensions of globalization.  Readings and discussions cover a wide range of topics including the demands of global capital, the future of the African Union, and the challenge of eliminating corruption, the growth of Asian outsourcing and the importance of financial remittances to local economies.
