Five decades, five themes.
On May 3, 2012, World Policy Institute presented a unique opportunity for guests to converse around five global issues that require innovative approaches across borders:
Media and Conflict
Reducing World Financial Risk
New Security Priorities
At each table, hosts including World Policy Fellows and eminent friends engaged guests in dinner conversation around these five themes. Their insights will inform our work as we embark on our next 50 years. Click here for a list of discussion leaders by theme.
