  • 8.Book Talk | Seeing the World

    NYU’s Institute for Public Knowledge and the Social Science Research Council invite you to a discussion of Seeing the World: How US Universities Make Knowledge in a Global Era, with authors Mitchell L. Stevens, Cynthia Miller-Idriss, and Seteney Shami. The event will be moderated by Ann Morning with critical remarks from George Steinmetz. U.S. research universities have long endeavored to be cosmopolitan places, yet the disciplines of economics, political science, and sociology have remained stubbornly parochial. Despite decades of government and philanthropic investment in international scholarship, the most prestigious academic departments still favor research and expertise on the United States. Why? Seeing the World answers this question by examining university research centers that focus on the Middle East and related regional area studies. Drawing on candid interviews with scores of top scholars and university leaders to understand how international inquiry is perceived and valued inside the academy, Seeing the World explains how intense competition for tenure-line appointments encourages faculty to pursue “American” projects that are most likely to garner professional advancement. At the same time, constrained by tight budgets at home, university leaders eagerly court patrons and clients worldwide but have a hard time getting departmental faculty to join the program. Together these dynamics shape how scholarship about the rest of the world evolves. At once a work-and-occupations study of scholarly disciplines, an essay on the formal organization of knowledge, and an inquiry into the fate of area studies, Seeing the World is a must-read for anyone who cares about the future of knowledge in a global era.

    On 16 March 2018, the Understanding Violent Conflict (UVC) program organized a Central Africa Policy Forum on current developments in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), with featured speaker Sylvain Saluseke of the Congolese pro-democracy youth activist group, LUCHA. The meeting, held at the Security Council Report and in the margins of Security Council debates on the mandate renewal of the UN mission in the DRC (MONUSCO), brought together representatives from UN country missions, the UN Secretariat, NGOs, and researchers. LUCHA or Struggle for Change (Twitter: @luchaRDC) is a non-violent, non-partisan citizen's movement formed in 2012 and based in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Neither a classic NGO nor a political party, Lucha has mobilized in innovative ways to ensure young people’s voices are heard in DRC. Sylvain Saluseke, a businessman and activist, was held by Congolese security forces for over a month in 2015 for his work with the movement.

  • 23.Let’s Talk About Drugs: Policy Coherence and the Sustainable Development Goals (New York)

    CPPF, in partnership with the International Peace Institute (IPI), hosted the launch of a joint report on drugs, sustainable development, and the drive for policy coherence. The event, which took place on February 22, centered on how drug policy can help or hinder member states’ efforts to achieve the SDGs. The forum also examined the findings following a year of work by a group of researchers and policy makers—convened by CPPF and IPI—on ways in which the drug policy agenda overlaps with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). CPPF Program Manager Sabrina Stein, who co-authored the report, was a member of the panel. During her remarks, she addressed the concern that drug policy has not been developed in concert with the SDGs, and described six concrete recommendations from the paper that would enable this mutual consideration. The paper is available on the CPPF and IPI websites.
