NYU Wagner visiting professor Beth Noveck and clinical professor Shankar Prasad are in 10 Downing St. today, Nov. 9, for the start of a two-day conversation -- co-hosted by Wagner -- on the future of democracy and the impact of technology.

They join about 40 others at a long table in the wood-paneled State Dining Room, a mix of intersecting and influential perspectives from industry, government, development, nonprofits, and universities. The participants also include Wagner MPA students Kevin Hansen and Sean Brooks.

The London gathering represents a planning meeting for a MacArthur Foundation-supported research network that will develop collaborative new strategies for tackling the world’s hardest problems.

In the evening, the group of thought leaders will head to a dinner organized by the World Bank to continue the discussion in an informal setting. They'll resume the conference on Nov. 10.
