We are proud to announce that NYU’s Robert F.

Opportunism: Transforming the World Economy, One Idea at a Time

Presented by NYU Wagner and Farrar Straus & Giroux

Please join us for a dialogue with Shraga Biran, author of Opportunism: How to Change the World One Idea at a Time and Eduardo Porter, author of The Price of Everything: Solving the Mystery of Why We Pay What We Do.

“In today’s world, opportunity can no longer be viewed as a chance occurrence or as a starting point for competition in society. Rather, it is the raw material for a new era of abundance.”  More than natural resources, an impressive portfolio, or prime real estate, innovation, entrepreneurship and opportunity are today’s currency; physical assets are trumped by social and intellectual capital.  In the groundbreaking new book Opportunism: How to Change the World One Idea at a Time, Shraga Biran (founder of one of Israel’s leading law firms and a lifelong champion of civil rights and social justice) makes clear that the challenge now to government and society is to protect the creators of this new kind of wealth and to extend to all individuals the rights and stability necessary to own whatever opportunities they create as their private property.  At this event, Biran and Porter will discuss and explore the ideas in thier books, as well as what leaders in public service can do to extend and protect opportunty for all global citizens.

A continental breakfast will be served.

Creative State: Book Announcement and Celebration

At the turn of the 21st century, governments around the world began searching for ways to capitalize on emigration for economic growth, and they looked to nations that already had policies in place. Morocco and Mexico featured prominently as sources of “best practices” in this area.

In Creative State, Assistant Professor of Public Policy Natasha Iskander chronicles how these innovative policies emerged and evolved over 40 years and reveals how neither the governments nor their migrant constituencies ever predicted the ways the initiatives would fundamentally redefine nationhood, development and citizenship.

Morocco’s and Mexico’s experiences with migration and development policy demonstrate that the state can be a remarkable site of creativity, an essential but often overlooked component of good governance.

Featuring:

Ellen Schall, Dean and Martin Cherkasky Professor of Health Policy & Management, NYU Wagner

Craig Calhoun, President of the Social Science Research Council, Director of the Institute for Public Knowledge at NYU, and Professor of Sociology at NYU

Jorge Castañeda, Global Distinguished Professor of Politics and Latin American and Caribbean Studies at NYU and former Foreign Minister of Mexico.

Ruth Milkman,  Associate Director of the Joseph S. Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies at CUNY, Professor of Sociology at CUNY

2010 Census: Snapshot of America?

Lower income and mobile populations, including individuals involved with the criminal justice system, are frequently undercounted by the Census. This disparity magnifies the inequities already existing within communities, leading to underfunding of critical services and infrastructure as well as under-representat ion in government. On April 5, 2010, SCJR will host an event titled, 2010 Census: Snapshot of America?, which will engage the Wagner community and demographic experts in a discussion about how to make the 2010 Census more just and reflective of historically undercounted communities. We invite you to participate in the discussion and make an enduring difference in your community by getting involved and staying informed.

The panelists include:
Ryan Kim, Partnership Specialist, U.S. Census Bureau
Jeremy Saunders, Lead Organizer, NYC AIDS Housing Authority
Martha E. Chavez, Coordinator of Advocacy and Organizing, NICE New Immigrant Community Empowerment

Pathways to Opportunity: Overcoming Barriers to Human Mobility

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


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.
