Speaker(s): Professor David Held; Lord Patten

Recorded on 18 November 2009 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

The list of challenges facing the world is proliferating rapidly from climate change to nuclear proliferation and nobody seems to have much of a grip on what is going on. In this public dialogue hosted by Global Policy, a new innovative and interdisciplinary journal, Chris Patten and Professor David Held will discuss what we know in each of these areas and how progress can be made.
