Dr. Altinay will present his book Global Civics. The simple yet challenging goal of this book is to deliberate the legitimacy, and advance the feasibility, of an important new concept—the notion of “global civics.” We cannot achieve the international cooperation that is needed for a globalizing and interdependent century without embracing and implementing this important concept.

The first section of Global Civics is a presentation of the overall idea itself; the second section consists of diverse assessments from around the world of the concept and where it currently stands. The third section discusses various options for a global civics curriculum.

Hakan Altinay is a Senior Fellow in Global Economy and Development at the Brookings Institution, Washington DC, and is former Executive Director of the Open Society Foundation–Turkey.
