The year 2021 began amongst serious global challenges, including the climate emergency, new regional alliances, crippling political divisions in the world’s leading capitalist state, and an ongoing global pandemic. As we look to the decade beyond, what are some of the global issues the public, policymakers and the social sciences need to come to grip with? This panel will explore a few of those issues and offer insights on a world in transition.
