This panel will showcase prominent experts and their predictions about the ethical implications of global political risk for 2009. Aimed at decision makers in corporate, government, and nonprofit sectors, the panel seeks to provide a stimulating preface to the critical global political, social, and economic shifts for the year ahead. Using Eurasia Group's Top Risks as a starting point for identifying the major global challenges in 2009, the discussion will examine the ethical aspects of each issue, and how best these dynamic and complex challenges can be met.

Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group, will start the discussion, outlining his firm's Top Risks. From financial regulation to climate change and energy security, Bremmer will kick off the event with an engaging synopsis of the causes and effects of the most dramatic geopolitical shifts likely to pose challenges for global markets over the next twelve months.

Michele Wucker, executive director of World Policy Institute, will highlight the ethical dimensions of the top risks for 2009, focusing on the role of civil society, migration flows, and the long-term interests of corporations.

Art Kleiner, editor-in-chief of Booz & Company's strategy+business magazine and a long-time management expert, will elaborate on the tools that decision makers need to effectively manage global political risk and the practical linkages between policy and implementation.

Thomas Stewart, chief marketing and knowledge officer, Booz & Company, will moderate the discussion.

This luncheon event is coordinated in conjunction with Eurasia Group as part of the Carnegie Council's Workshops for Ethics in Business, sponsored by Booz & Company's strategy+business magazine. Support also comes from SAP, Merck, and New York University's Center for Global Affairs.
