This event will celebrate Richard N. Gardner's lasting impact on Columbia and the world and the establishment of the professorship in his honor, with an address by its founding professor Jan Svejnar. These brief remarks will be followed by a distinguished panel discussion on Richard Gardner's legacy in the current world order, entitled “What Kind of Economic Policy and Diplomacy Can Meet the Challenges of the New Global World?”.
Richard Gardner’s life work was focused on teaching and diplomacy in the areas of international trade and economic policy. In this post-Covid 19, post COP 26 new normal, with tensions mounting both internally and internationally, can current economic policy, trade policy and diplomacy still provide effective solutions in meeting our new global challenges?
