Book Launch: "The Quest for Security: Protection Without Protectionism and the Challenge of Global Governance"

Thursday, October 24, 2013 - 6:15pm - 7:30pm
Columbia University Morningside Campus Earl Hall Auditorium

Join Joseph E. Stiglitz, Michael Doyle and Jan Svejnar in a discussion of "The Quest for Security: Protection Without Protectionism and the Challenge of Global Governance," a collection edited by Joseph E. Stiglitz and Mary Kaldor.

Co-sponsored by the Committee on Global Thought and the Center on Global Economic Governance.

About "The Quest for Security":

The essays in this collection boldly confront the quest for security arising out of the social, economic, environmental, and political crises and transformations of our century. Joseph E. Stiglitz and Mary Kaldor begin with an expansive, balanced analysis of the global landscape and the factors contributing to the growth of insecurity. While earlier studies have touched on how globalization has increased economic insecurity and how geopolitical changes may have contributed to military insecurity, this volume looks for some common threads: in a globalized world without a global government, with a system of global governance not up to the tasks, how do we achieve security without looking inward and stepping back from globalization? In each of their areas of expertise, contributors seek answers to questions about how we achieve protection of those people who are most insecure without resorting to economic, military, or mafia protectionism.
