The world faces a myriad of complex and interconnected conflicts that are not bound by borders or solved effectively by any one nation. These conflicts are driven by what is termed "The Global Problematique", the set of global systemic issues that include governance, environmental degradation, socioeconomic development, and resource scarcity, among many others. These dynamics require innovative and sustainable solutions to address the multidimensional causes that are inherent in every conflict. The Global Problematique Working Group is committed holistically to identify, analyze, and propose practical approaches to peacebuilding the world over.
Come join the Global Problematique Working Group for an opportunity to meet, listen, network, and discuss with some of the DC areas brightest thinkers and practitioners on global problems and see where the future of tackling these problems is headed. The event will be a catered event with a panel discussion and Q&A during the first half and food being served with round table workshops during the second half.
