openDemocracy event in New York

24 October 2005
Obviously, everyone in NY should come to this. I'm very excited about the speakers. Check out Anthony Barnett's interview with Mary Robinson about her human rights work from 2003. In New York, openDemocracy, the The Carnegie Council for Ethics and International Affairs, and New York Society for Ethical Culture present: "Is a FAIRER Globalization Possible?" Wednesday, Oct. 26 - 7PM *Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland, and President of Realising Rights: Ethical Globalisation Initiative *Kemal Dervis, head of United Nations Development Program *Stephen Macedo, Professor of Politics, Princeton University Globalization has brought about more opportunities for people worldwide, but also rising inequality within and between nations. This poverty and despair is unsustainable and morally unacceptable. But what should be done? Gideon Rose, Managing Editor of Foreign Affairs will serve as Moderator. Tuesday, October 26, 2005 from 7pm to 9:00pm. At the New York Society for Ethical Culture, 2 West 64th Street at Central Park West. (Subways: 1 & 9 to 66th St-Lincoln Center. Or A/C to Columbus Circle.) Donations will be accepted. No reservations. Seating is first come, first served. Call openDemocracy's New York office on +1 (646) 220-1459 for more info.
