03/03/2015 Conflict Security and Development Series - Spring 2015 - Who Protects Education? A Case Study of the Global Movement to Protect Education and the Protection of Education in Palestine

Who Protects Education? A Case Study of the Global Movement to Protect Education and the Protection of Education in Palestine
With Amy Kapit, Research Director, Assessment of Learning Outcomes and Social Effects in Community-Based Education, Afghanistan

In 2010, the Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack was established to advocate for protecting schools, students, and teachers in areas of armed conflict. However, the structure of the international humanitarian system has limited the “on-the-ground impact” of the movement in its initial years of existence. The individuals who are most effective in making these connections are those who have strong knowledge of international frameworks and of the specific context in which they work. I draw on fieldwork in Palestine to describe how the structure of the humanitarian system bifurcates these two sets of knowledge, disadvantaging those individuals who have both sets of knowledge.

02/24/2015 Conflict Security and Development Series - Spring 2015 - Voting for Violence: Why Paramilitaries Fare Well at the Polls

Voting for Violence: Why Paramilitaries Fare Well at the Polls
With Mary Beth Altier, Visiting Clinical Assistant Professor, Center for Global Affairs

What explains the willingness of citizens to support armed groups at the polls? Paramilitary organizations such as Hezbollah and Hamas have fared well in a series of recent elections deemed relatively free and fair by the international community. Few studies examine why these violent parties triumph at the polls in some contexts but struggle for votes in others. Yet, understanding when and why armed groups succeed in winning over large portions of the electorate is critical to creating policies that de-incentivize, at least electorally, their use of force. A better understanding of why these parties succeed also lends insight into the social bases of support for these organizations. Analysis of a new sub-national dataset that codes and combines census, election, and disaggregated conflict-related violence data for 78 electoral districts during Northern Ireland’s Troubles as well as fieldwork and comparative case studies across countries, suggests that support for these groups stems primarily from citizens’ perceptions of insecurity as a result of exposure to certain types of conflict-related violence. Discuss the implications of these findings for counterinsurgency policy and post-conflict reconstruction.

02/17/2015 Two Artists, Two Visions: A Black History Month Exhibit

Presented by the Gallery Space at Wagner and co-sponsored by the Black Student Association

Date: Tuesday, February 17, 2015
Time: 6:30pm - 7:30pm (Discussion)
          7:30pm - 9:00pm (Gallery Reception)
Location: NYU Wagner, 295 Lafayette Street, 2nd Floor, NYC
                Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue/ Newman Reception Area

New York University’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service is pleased to announce the opening of Two Artists, Two Visions, the Spring 2015 exhibition and artist discussion at the Gallery Space at Wagner. Staged in commemoration of Black History Month, Two Artists, Two Visions features artwork by NYU-affiliated artists Jacqueline Bishop and Alex Merchant.

Jamaican-born Bishop explores issues of home, ancestry, family, migration, and connectivity through a series of photomontage prints that often split characters between the realms of heavenly and earthly space. The overall effect is spectral, haunting, and deeply nostalgic.  

While Bishop pays tribute to her heritage by reflecting on her family history and migratory journey, Merchant delves into his explorations of identity by recasting the role of the Black male athlete within the contemporary context of corporate America. His typographical prints and trading card-inspired paintings of professional basketball players examine the commercialization of athletes and the impact of the sport on young men in African American communities. The commanding, live-size canvases seek to confront stereotypes and the prevailing conundrum of simultaneously idolizing and fearing the dark body.

02/17/2015 Conflict Security and Development Series - Spring 2015 - Accountability for Somalia’s Security Service: A Case Study in US Federal Court

Accountability for Somalia’s Security Service: A Case Study in US Federal Court
With Christina Hioureas, Senior Associate, International Arbitration and Public International Law at Chadbourne & Parke, LLP.

Ahmed v. Magan, the first decision to hold a member of Somalia’s notorious National Security Service accountable for human rights violations, illustrates the challenges and possibilities for pursuing accountability in post conflict societies. Christina Hioureas represented Hassan Ahmed, a Somali constitutional law professor and human rights advocate who was tortured during the Siade Barre regime, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, under the Alien Tort Statute and Torture Victim Protection Act. Using this case as a point of entry, Hioureas will discuss developments in Somalia in the last 40 years, beginning with the collapse of democracy, rise of the Siade Barre regime and the restrictions on human rights and constitutional rights, the end of the dictatorship, efforts to seek justice, and current efforts to build the country’s legal system from the ground up.

You are invited to a Wagner graduate’s presentation of exciting government reform work in India.

More so than any industry in the world government has the ability to impact the way people live, to create opportunity, and to eradicate poverty. The Government of India spends billions of dollars annually on poverty alleviation, economic development, and healthcare but admits, in some cases, that up to 88% is lost to corruption and inefficiencies.

Designed for the context of developing countries, Spatial Ideas builds technology products that streamline workflows, embed data collection and optimize resource utilization to transform the way that government delivers critical services. To ensure transparency, accountability and efficiency, each product is developed in consultation with government officials, contractors, employees and beneficiaries.

Through live demonstrations, the presentation will show how in initial projects technology has been used to increase availability and quality of healthcare for 4.5 million people, cut infrastructure delays by 92%, and has guaranteed delivery of food to 150,000 poor families while saving 6 million dollars in one district.

12/10/2014 Dig Deep for a Greener New York Policy Forum: Organic Waste & Composting

Sponsored by the New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund in partnership with New Yorkers for Parks and NYU Wagner’s Institute for Civil Infrastructure Systems 

Date: Wednesday, December 10, 2014
Time: 8:00 am – 12:00 pm
Location: NYU Wagner, 295 Lafayette Street, 2nd Floor, NYC
                Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue

Please join the New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund and NYU Wagner’s Institute for Civil Infrastructure Systems for Dig Deep for a Greener New York, a policy forum series that continues on December 10th with a timely discussion on organic waste and composting for New York City.

PlaNYC2030 set out an ambitious goal to divert 75 percent of our solid waste from landfills. As food currently makes up 35 percent of all waste generated in New York City, composting is an attractive strategy to save taxpayer dollars and improve environmental performance. Various composting pilot projects are underway in residential and school settings. But to truly reach an economy of scale and address inherent challenges involving organic waste, infrastructure must be developed. This forum will address these issues and discuss potential next steps.

Panel 1: The role of organics and food waste collection in achieving the City’s solid waste management goals. Exploration of the potential and the challenges of scaling up organics and food waste collection. 

Panelists:
Council Member Antonio Reynoso, Chair, Committee on Sanitation
Norman Steisel, President & CEO, Enessco Strategies
Tammy Gamerman, Senior Research Associate, Citizens Budget Commission
Bridget Anderson, Deputy Commissioner for Recycling and Sustainability, NYC Department of Sanitation
Eric Goldstein, Senior Attorney, Urban Program, NRDC

Panel 2: Specific strategies to scale up organics and food waste collection in New York City (residential / commercial), what works, what doesn’t, can the City divert food waste completely from the waste stream?

Panelists
Paul Sellew, Harvest Power
Helena Rose Durst, Vice President, Durst Organization
Christine Datz Romero, Executive Director, Lower East Side Ecology Center
Anthony Fiore, Director, Office of Energy,  NYC Department of Environmental Protection

12/03/2014 Re-Programming Mobility: What Do Smart Phones and Self-Driving Cars Mean for Future Cities?


Presented by the NYU Rudin Center for Transportation

Date: Wednesday, December 3, 2014
Time: 9:00 am – 10:30 am
Location: NYU Wagner, 295 Lafayette Street, 2nd Floor, NYC
               The Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue

For decades, transportation experts have anticipated a sweeping technological transformation of the way Americans travel, and the transportation system they use to do so. That transformation has arrived at all scales – from individual trip planning to the design and management of regional mass transit systems. But, in a distinct shift from the last 50 years, when transportation innovation in the United States was shaped by big public infrastructure projects like the Interstate Highway System, this transformation is being driven by the private sector. Silicon Valley has set its sights on the transportation system as its next big opportunity, and its first moves have triggered conflicts with regulators at every level of government.

But how will this historic surge of investment and invention into the transportation sector impact existing infrastructure and land use patterns, travel behaviors, regulatory frameworks and financing structures, and the practice of transportation planning and management? This symposium will explore the Rudin Center for Transportation’s recently published report, Re-Programming Mobility: The Digital Transformation of Transportation in the United States. Key questions include:

-What new technologies and services will have the broadest impact on mobility?
-How might new mobility technologies and services impact land use patterns?
-What kinds of organizational changes will transportation regulators, funding agencies, and planning institutions need to begin preparing for now, and what kinds of skills and practices will transportation planners need in the future?

Panelists:
Robin Chase, Buzzcar
Stacey Hodge, New York City Department of Transportation
Greg Lindsay, Visiting Scholar, NYU Rudin Center
Benjamin De La Peña, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation

Moderated by Anthony Townsend, NYU Rudin Center
