The Future of Global Education – Princeton in dialogue with students from Sciences Po, Paris, France
From Jack Allen on February 13th, 2021
The COVID pandemic has destabilized higher education globally, impeding research cooperation across countries, and limiting travel and study between countries. Amid weakened support for educational institutions, public financing, and international cooperation, students face great uncertainties and decisions on what to learn and on careers. As part of future elites in your home country, what rights and responsibilities do you believe follow from this status?
This event features a group of 3-4 Princeton students in dialogue with 3-4 undergraduate students from partner universities in Europe. Questions and commentary from the audience will also be invited. We aim to broaden the conversation on the Princeton campus around these important recent and ongoing events, by inviting a comparative international perspective.
Moderators: Aly Kassam-Remtulla (Associate Provost for International Affairs and Operations) and John Borneman (Professor of Anthropology. Director, Program in Contemporary European Politics and Society. Acting Director, Program in Ethnographic Studies).
This panel is co-sponsored by the Program in Contemporary European Politics and Society, the Program for Community Engaged Scholarship (ProCES), Service Focus at the Pace Center for Civic Engagement, and the Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination.
