- A Public Discussion -

Renowned political theorist Benjamin Barber advances civil society and engaged citizenship as tools for building effective democracy in the post Cold War world. He is a Senior Research Scholar at The Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society at The City University of New York, the President and Founder of the Interdependence Movement, and Walt Whitman Professor of Political Science Emeritus, Rutgers University. Author of the best selling Jihad vs. McWorld, his most recent book examines the failure of nation-states to address global problems, and argues that cities and intercity associations are more effectively addressing shared concerns. http://benjaminbarber.org/
