  • Europe's Last Chance: Why the European States Must Form a More Perfect Union | 01/24/17 (with live webcast) Guy Verhofstadt Europe is caught in its greatest crisis since the Second World War. The catalog of ills seems endless: an economic crisis through most of Europe's Mediterranean tier; terrorist attacks in Paris, Cologne, Brussels, and Nice; growing aggression from Russia in Ukraine and the Baltic states; and refugees escaping war-torn neighbors. Brexit is now a reality and others may follow. How can Europe survive? What are the consequences of a divided Europe, on both sides of Atlantic? Could a United States of Europe, patterned after the American federal system, be a realistic solution? (Public Affairs Program)
  • The Populist Explosion: How the Great Recession Transformed American and European Politics | 02/01/17 (with live webcast) John B. Judis In 2016, the world's richest democracies witnessed a collective upheaval that shocked the globe and seemed impossible to understand. The United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union; Donald Trump was elected president of the United States; and a slew of rebellious parties continued to influence elections in Switzerland, Norway, Italy, Austria, and Greece. What has happened to global politics? How does this all connect back to the populism movement that began in the United States in the 1890s? (Public Affairs Program)
  • Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow | 02/22/17 (with live webcast) Yuval Noah Harari For the first time ever, more people die from eating too much than from eating too little; more people die from old age than from infectious diseases; and more people commit suicide than are killed by soldiers, terrorists, and criminals put together. Some say that famine, plague, and war have been transformed from incomprehensible and uncontrollable forces of nature into manageable challenges and humans are the self-made gods of planet. Where do we go from here? How will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? (Public Affairs Program)
