Global Governance & the Emergence of Global Institutions

June 12 @ 1:15 pm - 2:30 pm CDT

Global Governance and the Emergence of Global Institutions for the 21st Century

Join us for a conversation with Arthur L. Dahl, Maja Groff and Augusto Lopez-Claros around the themes of their book: Global Governance and the Emergence of Global Institutions for the 21st Century.” This session will be hosted by Dr. Layli Maparyan and Dr. Derik Smith.

About the book: Is there any hope for those who despair at the state of the world and the powerlessness of governments to find a way forward? Lopez-Claros, Dahl and Groff provide ambitious but reasonable proposals to give our globalized world the institutions of international governance necessary to address effectively the catastrophic risks facing humanity that require international cooperation. The solution, the authors suggest, is to extend to the international level the same principles of sensible governance that exist in well-governed national systems: rule of law, legislation in the common interest, an executive branch to implement such legislation, and courts to enforce it. The best protection is unified collective action, based on shared values and respect for diversity, to implement international principles to advance universal human prosperity and well-being.  Register here

About the Bahá’í Calendar and Holy Days

The Baha’i Faith has its own calendar, called the Badí’ Calendar. It is a solar calendar consisting of 19 months of 19 days each (361 days), plus “Intercalary Days” (four in ordinary years and five in leap years) to adjust the calendar to the solar year. The days and months are named after the attributes of God. The Nineteen Day Feast, the primary community gathering for Baha’is in each town and city, is held on the first day of each Baha’i month. Eleven Holy Days mark significant events in Baha’i history.

We would love to hear from you
