Debate on Global Trade Reform: EU and US NGO Advocacy for Social Justice Anti-globalization activists have been critiquing the Global Trade Regime for over a decade, arguing for greater consideration of environmental issues, human rights and sustainable development.  The strongest advocacy has been targeted at the powers of the Global North: the US and the EU.   This  debate brings together NGO advocates from both sides of the Atlantic to discuss Fair Trade & Social Justice Advocacy today: what policies and institutions are being critiqued in the US and the EU, and at the international level?; what are organizations, coalitions and networks that are active in advocating changes to the status quo global trade regime?; how do the two NGO advocacy approaches compare and contrast, and what may explain any differences? are greater advances being made in one system over the other?; and, to what extent are advocates in the Global North working together and how might they do so more effectively?

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
