Led by Gordon Brown -- NYU’s first Distinguished Global Leader- in-Residence -- the NYU Dialogues on the Global Civil Society bring together groups of thinkers to discuss the extent to which a universal moral sense--capable of underpinning a global society--is either evolving or can be created, and to explore the nature of the global institutions and trends that could foster and sustain this sense that strangers are really neighbors in an ever-shrinking and highly globalized world.
