Free Public Panels: Governance in an Emerging New World | Stanford

George P. Shultz’s project of Governance in an Emerging New World explores the challenges and opportunities for democracy, economy, and security posed by emerging technologies and societal changes from April to May at 4 pm until 5:15 pm.

Upcoming Free Public Panels:

  • April 8: Health and the Changing Environment
  • April 22: The Middle East in an Emerging World
  • May 6: Emerging Technology and America’s Economy
  • May 14: Stability in an Age of Disruptions

Political upheaval, violence, and the Sunni-Shia divide have defined the Middle East and North Africa to outside observers for many years, but states across the region also confront shared global challenges of demographic transitions and governance in the age of social media, as well as the compelling economic potential of new technologies.

The discussion will address what these profound undercurrents, as well as the changing climate and expanding role of women, mean for the major Arab states, Turkey, Iran, and Israel.

Moderated by Abbas Milani, Hoover Institution and director of the Iranian studies program at Stanford University


  • Prince Hicham Alaoui of Morocco, Harvard University
  • Houssem Aoudi, cofounder and CEO at Cogite Coworking Tunisia
