A High-Level Leaders' Forum with the Helsinki Process on Globalisation and Democracy
Thursday, April 28, 2005 06:00 PM to 09:00 PM
Over fifty intellectual, political, and civil society leaders convened at the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs to debate the links between poverty, democracy, security and globalization. Participants were challenged to explore the role that the United States and other G8 countries can and should play with regard to promoting human rights and development on an increasingly interconnected global stage. The interactive dinner and dialogue was hosted by the Carnegie Council's Global Policy Innovations program, Ethical Globalization Initiative, Global Fairness Initiative, and was convened in partnership with the Helsinki Process on Globalisation and Democracy.
Keynote panelists included Mary Robinson (Executive Director, Ethical Globalization Initiative), Carole L. Brookins (former U.S. Executive Director, World Bank), Fantu Cheru (Professor, American University School of International Service), Shepard Forman (Director, Center on International Cooperation, NYU), and Colin Bradford (Visiting Fellow, Brookings Institution). Stephen Heintz (President, Rockefeller Brothers Fund) moderated the evening's discussion.
