Our world is already globalized - and globalizing still further. With its wonders and conveniences come issues of unprecedented scale and difficulty - climate change, of course, but also countless other new ways in which we relate to one another and to the natural world. Which are the most important forces at work in shaping the human condition? Will states and the international system suffice to ensure equity, stability and sustainability? Join us in thinking through the political practical, moral and imaginative challenges of our world-in-the-making.

In exploring key concepts and difficult issues, we will attempt to strike a balance between the social level and the experiences of individuals, particularly in terms of ethical and political responsiveness; and the bases on which we can conceive and enact positive forms of human community poised to face current and continuing challenges.
