Cities and States: The New Global Players
Harvard Kennedy School, Taubman 301
Mon., Feb. 2, 2015, 10 – 11 a.m.
The international activism of subnational governments (city and states) is rapidly growing across the world, discreetly transforming diplomatic practices and the delivery of public services. Cities and/or states sign international agreements, are members of international organizations, have formal relations with sovereign nations, and run their own diplomatic representations. This seminar provides an overview of paradiplomacy worldwide and explores what lies ahead for foreign affairs, urbanism and public policies.
