On Thursday, 25 April 2019 at 3:00pm, the ISA and the United Nations will sponsor an open forum on the topic “South-South cooperation and the UN Development System: Complement, competitor, role model, or threat?” This event is part of a series being cosponsored by the ISA and United Nations Academic Impact, leading up to the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations. ISA participants will include:
- Emel Parlar Dal, Marmara University
- Samiratou Dipama, Marmara University
- Paulo Esteves, Pontifical Catholic University of Rio di Janeiro
- Silke Weinlich, German Development Institute
The UN representation is still pending. That information will be updated as soon as possible.
This event will take place at UN Headquarters in New York. Admission is free and open to the public. The ISA is working on connecting this event to other educational experiences earlier the same day for students and teachers; ideally these other events will be related to the theme of South-South cooperation and development. We hope to include a full educational experience for attendees and encourage faculty to incorporate this into syllabi.
If you are interested in attending, and/or bringing students to these events, please contact Joel E. Oestreich, <firstname.lastname@example.org> for more information. ISA will keep you informed as the program develops. And feel free to mark this on your calendars now!
