In honor of our 40th Anniversary, S&T Policy Fellowships invites you to attend the second speaker in a year-long series. The 2013 Distinguished Speaker Series features noted scholars, scientists and policy leaders sharing their insights, discussing today's most compelling science-policy issues.
On June 27, award-winning columnist and former Foreign Policy editor Moisés Naím will draw upon provocative, original research to illuminate the struggle between once-dominant megaplayers and the new micropowers challenging them in every field of human endeavor. Power is shifting, from presidential palaces to public squares, from once formidable corporate behemoths to nimble startups and, slowly but surely, from men to women. Power isn't just shifting, its also crumbling. For those who are in a position of power, they are more restricted in their role than ever before. Naím will offer a groundbreaking look at this change in power and how it affects us all.
Naim is also the author of the 2013 publication, The End of Power: From Boardrooms to Battlefields and Churches to States, Why Being In Charge Isn't What It Used to Be. A vendor will be on hand for the purchase of copies if desired.
