Chicago Booth alumni and students are invited to the Pearson Global Forum hosted by The Pearson Institute for the Study and Resolution of Global Conflicts in Berlin, Germany.
Just weeks before the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall, the second annual Pearson Global Forum titled "Beyond Walls I Deconstructing Conflict" will be both a reflection on the prospects for change once envisioned, as well as a discussion of our current global reality. The Global Forum convenes the world's foremost thinkers and influencers each year for the purpose of informing and developing new strategies to prevent, resolve, and recover from conflict. By promoting dialogue between diverse academics, policymakers, and other stakeholders, it elevates research findings and helps scholars secure the exposure and cooperation necessary to advance their research. And for policymakers, it provides access to expert direction and insights they can use to create effective public policy.
Welcome Remarks by:
Dean and Emmett Dedmon Professor, Harris School of Public Policy, University of Chicago
Institute Director, The Pearson Institute; Reverend Dr. Richard L. Pearson Professor of Global Conflict Studies and University Professor, Harris School of Public Policy, University of Chicago
