Today, globalism is seen as a reckless elitist plot. Meanwhile, nationalists are derided as racists and bigots. But what if the two were not so far apart? In this talk, British-Iraqi development expert Hassan Damluji discusses The Responsible Globalist, a manifesto for building an inclusive global nation.
Hassan Damluji (@hassandamluji) leads the Middle East team at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He is a co-founder of the $2 Billion Lives and Livelihoods Fund, the largest multilateral development fund based in the Middle East. He has been named every year since 2015 as one of the 100 most influential Arabs under 40, by Arabian Business magazine.
Erik Berglof (@ErikBerglof) became the inaugural Director of the Institute of Global Affairs (IGA) on 1 February 2015. He joined the School as a Professor in Practice in the Department of Economics.
