Optional RSVP via Facebook or Upcoming

Nobel Laureates Amartya Sen and Michael Spence will join leading Information and Communication Technology (ICT) experts Yochai Benkler and Clotilde Fonseca in a public discussion of the role of communication and ICTs in human development, growth and poverty reduction. What has changed, been learned, not been learned, needs to be learned, needs to be done most urgently? Panelists and the in-person and online audiences will debate a range of topics, including:

* Communications and the technologies that enable them, like education, comprise a basic building block of human development at all levels of poverty/prosperity and freedoms.

* The “connectedness revolution” is a major dimension of globalization, with the expansions and contractions of prosperity and freedoms that globalization causes for different peoples.

* Communications, enabled by ICTs, are increasing informed public dialogue and debate in many countries and societies.

* Informed public debate at national and international levels will be essential in achieving solutions to global warming, and better management of the global economy.

* Crisis prevention and management – financial, economic, pandemic, natural disaster – are being improved by ICT-enabled communication and information delivery.

* Openness is always better than protection in principal; how far can it reach in practice?
