Kozmetsky Center Wraps Up Successful Fall
Supporting its mission to examine social issues through economic policy, the Kozmetsky Center of Global Excellence in Finance wrapped up its second fall lecture series in November. Talks from this year's series focused on several related themes:
- Security of citizens in today's global environment
- Relationship between corruption and poverty
- Changing role of the United Nations
Among the notable guest speakers, Sir Marrack Goulding, KCMG, looked at the impact of recent global events on the United Nations in his talk, "The United Nations and Conflict: Prevention, Management, Resolution and Reconstruction." Goulding, who is the former undersecretary-general for Peace-Keeping Operations at the United Nations, offered unique insights into one of the world's most influential organizations.
The Kozmetsky Center continues its growth as a resource supporting an interdisciplinary approach for exploring global finance as it affects people, cultures and social justice. The center is currently guided in its efforts by interim director Joseph S. Tulchin, who served as the director of the Latin American Program at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C., for more
than 15 years.
