Pathways to Opportunity: Overcoming Barriers to Human Mobility

Date: 11/19/2009

Location: The Puck Building, The Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue, 2nd Fl.

A discussion of the United Nations Development Programme's 2009 Human Development Report

with Jeni Klugman, director of the Human Development Report Office

Human mobility and development is the new, definitive report on migration and development. It breaks new ground in applying a human development approach to the study of movement, covering both internal and international migration. It discusses who moves, where and why. It looks at the multiple impacts of migration for all who are affected by it—not just those who move, but also those who stay, and links these to policies. The report lays out a major policy agenda designed to promote the human development outcomes of migration, and is a must read for everyone interested in the topic—for the GFMD and beyond.

Jeni Klugman, the study's lead author, will highlight the key findings and outline its recommendations by governments, civil society and other actors.

A Look at Education and Economic Development: Conversations with NYC Mayoral Candidates

Date: 10/15/2009
Time: 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Location: The Puck Building, The Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue, 2nd Fl.
295 Lafayette Street, New York, NY 10012-9604  map


Presented by the Wagner Policy Alliance Student Group

In line with the Wagner Policy Alliance’s 2009 –2010 theme, “Poverty in the United States: A Plurality of Perspectives”, the WPA will provide the 2009 NYC Mayoral candidates with an opportunity to express their views and proposed policies concerning the poor.

The purpose of this mayoral candidate panel is to create a forum for discussion regarding city policies that directly impact the lives of poor New Yorkers.  Too often, election agendas are remiss of any mention about communities living in poverty. 

The two broad issues covered by the dialogue are education and economic development (e.g. - asset building, wealth creation, and financial empowerment).  Questions about these two issues will be taken from the Wagner community a week before the event, which will be then presented by the faculty moderator to the candidates.  The goal is not to engage in debates, but rather to foster a discussion among the candidates. Therefore, the candidates will be encouraged respond to one another in a civil manner.

Confirmed:
Joseph Dobrian, Libertarian Party
Rev. Billy Talen, Green Party
Ms. Frances Villar, Socialist Libertarian Party

New addition:

Jimmy McMillan, Rent is Too Damn High Party

Invited:
Bill Thompson, Democratic Party

Mega-Projects: New York: Building Big: A Critical Examination of the Planning of Mega Urban Transportation Projects

Presented by The NYU Wagner Rudin Center for Transportation

Curated by Anthony Shorris

When NYU was established at Washington Square, New York was the new world. Now it is a mature city, and Abu Dhabi, a youthful, growing metropolis, is the new world. However different, the cities face common challenges that this series will explore. Underscoring the twin focus, the speakers will deliver talks in both New York and Abu Dhabi and address the circumstances in each city.

Anthony Shorris is a Professor of Practice at the Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service and serves as Director of the Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management. Before joining NYU, he was Executive Director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Changing Climate and Water Management: A Perspective on Science and Implementation for Adaptation

Water is already a critical factor affecting the social and economic well-being of a sizable proportion of the world’s population. However, with the world’s population projected to double in over the next fifty years, and water supplies becoming both more scarce and more volatile as a result of global warming, we are likely to face a water crisis so severe it will reshape everything from our governance structures to our modes of economic and agricultural production to our patterns of social interaction. Water will be the axis around which much of public policy revolves.

This Tuesday evening series will explore innovative and sustainable solutions for water harvesting, looking at water provision from a new vantage point: via how water sources are changing as a function of global warming and increased population pressures. The implications that these shifts will have for water sourcing and water distribution will also be explored.

Yes We Can: A New Agenda for Advancing Leaders of Color in Social Change

Location: The Puck Building, The Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue, 2nd Fl.
295 Lafayette Street, New York, NY 10012-9604  map

The election of Barack Obama as the first African-American President heralds a historic moment in US history.  It is an opportunity to reflect at the national and local levels on where we have come in race relations and where we need to go. This is an especially pressing question in the nonprofit sector, where a study by the Annie E. Casey Foundation finds that as many as 24,000 nonprofit executives could retire by 2010, creating significant openings for the next generation of leaders to take the helm. 

 

Leadership programs have a significant part to play in attracting and supporting talented leaders of color as they develop the skills, knowledge and networks to take senior positions in nonprofit and social change organizations. New research holds significant promise for practical strategies to both affirm and draw on the expertise and experience of leaders of color as they navigate often unwelcoming power structures. Research also shows the active roles white leaders can play personally and as part of broader efforts to establish more equitable and effective systems. At the same time, the leadership literature’s treatment of issues of race does not offer innovative ideas to address the demands described. There is a need for both scholars and practitioners to reconceptualize the way we think about the connections between race and leadership.

* Laurie M. Hunt, Management Consultant, Center for Gender in Organizations

Domestic Violence as a Human Rights Violation: New Directions for Advocates and Scholars

Domestic Violence as a Human Rights Violation: New Directions for Advocates and Scholars

Date: 12/03/2008
Time: 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Location: Vanderbilt Hall, Room 214, NYU Law School, 40 Washington Square South (between Macdougal and Sullivan Streets)

Presented by The Women of Color Policy Network at NYU Wagner and Law Students for Human Rights

 

On October 22, 2008, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights held its second hearing in the case of Jessica Gonzales v. United States.  In 2000, Ms. Gonzales (now Jessica Lenahan) filed a § 1983 lawsuit against the Castle Rock, Colorado Police Department and individual officers after they ignored her repeated calls for assistance with locating her children and enforcing her restraining order against her estranged husband Simon Gonzales, who had kidnapped them. Tragically, 10 hours after her first call to the police, her husband died in a shootout with the police, and her daughters were found dead in the back of his truck, positioned directly behind him. To this day, it is not known whether they were killed by Simon Gonzales earlier that evening or in the hailstorm of police bullets. In 2005, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Ms. Lenahan’s case, finding that she had no constitutional due process right to enforcement of her restraining order.  Having exhausted all of her domestic remedies, Ms. Lenahan filed a case before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), an international human rights tribunal that is part of the organization of American States (OAS) and is responsible for the promotion of human rights in the Americas (North, South, and Central America and the Caribbean).

 

Carrie Bettinger-Lopez, Deputy Director of the Human Rights Clinic at Columbia Law School, has coordinated meetings of U.S.-based domestic violence advocates who work at the national, state, and local levels to discuss how the Gonzales case, and human rights strategies more generally, can be used in domestic violence advocacy.  Her work includes consideration of strategies at the legislative, litigation, public education, law enforcement training, and other levels.

 

Food will be served and you will need a photo ID to enter the building.

Presented by SNEAC - Student Network Exploring Arts and Culture


With featured guests:

  • Daniel Gallant, Executive Director, Nuyorican Poets Café
  • Agnes Gund, President Emerita of The Museum of Modern Art and Chairman of its International Council; Chairman of the Mayor’s Cultural Affairs Advisory Commission of the City of New York; Member, Obama Arts Policy Committee
  • Diane Ragsdale, Associate Program Officer, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
  • Jonathan Sheffer, Ex-Officio Board Member, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts
President-elect Obama has formed an Arts Policy Committee, and our roundtable discussion will explore whether his cultural platform is moving national policy in the right direction for the arts.  More broadly, we will question the role of the federal government in the arts, and whether its policy of no-policy is better than a formal cultural administration.  With the insight of our featured guests, we will collect policy recommendations to inform the cultural platform of the next administration. 

Light breakfast available at 8:15. 

Please arrive early to check-in before the event begins.
