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

Communications technologies, demographics and the movement of peoples, and climate change are combining to place enormous pressure on democracies and the rule of law, both here in the United States and around the world.

The panelists will discuss the impact of these disruptive forces on democratic systems, what can be done to strengthen governance, and how we might learn from when technological and social changes have challenged the capacity of democratic governments in the past.

Moderated by Deborah C Gordon, executive director of the Stanford University preventive defense project
