The Unravelling of the Liberal Order

Will the liberal order hold, or is its disassembling inevitable? What kinds of global order(s) does the future hold? The Lind Initiative’s Spring 2018 series will explore these and other questions, with visits from the world’s leading intellectuals on the subject.

“The largest party in America, by the way, is neither the Democrats nor the Republicans. It’s the party of non-voters.”

―Dr. Robert Reich, Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at UC at Berkeley and Senior Fellow at the Blum Center for Developing Economies

“As a US citizen and Canadian permanent resident studying at UBC, I’ve found the Lind Initiative an interesting opportunity to learn not only about the U.S. from a Canadian perspective, but also what that perspective can teach us about Canada. The chance to ask Professor Robert Reich questions in a small-group setting was particularly exciting. I appreciate that he made time in his busy schedule to chat with students and share his advice based on extensive experience in a candid and encouraging way. We need academics to help us make sense of these confusing times!”

― Lisa Brunner, PhD student in Educational Studies, UBC
