York alumni organize major conference on the state and future of the world post-pandemic and post U.S. election
Building on their major two-day national conference last month The State & Future of Canada, Post-Pandemic, York University alumni Irvin Studin (BBA ’99, PhD ’11) and Sam Sasan Shoamanesh (BA ’99) are back with a major two-day international conference titled, "The State & Future of the World, Post-Pandemic & Post-U.S. Election."
The conference takes place, virtually, Nov. 27 and 28, and is organized by the Institute for 21st Century Questions and Global Brief magazine. Studin and Shoamanesh co-founded the Institute for 21st-Century Questions, one of Canada's leading think tanks, in 2014, and Studin founded Global Brief magazine, Canada's preeminent international affairs magazine, in 2009.
The conference features some of the world's leading thinkers and practitioners, from all continents, and will cover everything from the state and future of global geopolitics after the pandemic and the 2020 American election, to global economics, public health, the Arctic, the Middle East, the former Soviet space and global institutions.
The working program includes Osgoode Hall Law School Professor Obiora Okafor and James Orbinski, professor and inaugural director of the Dahdaleh Institute of Global Health Research at York University.
