Center for Undergraduate Global Engagement
As part of Voting Week 2019, the Center for Undergraduate Global Engagement is co-sponsoring a panel discussion with Columbia faculty and Obama Foundation Scholars on the spread of reactionary movements and ideas across borders and democratic backsliding in regions like Europe, Latin America,and Asia. The objective is to evaluate how successful popular civic engagement (and youth civic engagement in particular) can work against such forces. Panelists include Dr. Turkuler Isiksel, James P. Shenton Associate Professor of the Core Curriculum; Dr. Laura Neitzel, Academic Director of the Committee on Global Thought; Natalia Herbst, Director for Community Organizations, Argentina National Youth Institute; and Wai Wai Nu, Founder, Yangon Youth Leadership, Founder and Executive Director, Women Peace Network.
