The divide between rural and urban areas is starker than ever across social, political, and economic markers. This division influences everything from the pace of economic development in China to sectarian strife in the Middle East to political pivots in the U.S. Join us Monday, Dec. 5th for:
Rural-Urban Divergence in Perceptions, Experience, and Values
In the 2016 U.S. election, “red” and “blue” counties each deepened their political positions for Republican and Democratic candidates, respectively, often delineated by rural, exurban, and urban geographies. And, urbanization around the world continues apace as rural populations in developing countries migrate to cities in search of better economic opportunity. How will these demographic shifts influence the political, economic, and security prospects of growing cities and shrinking rural communities? How do policy makers and business leaders reconcile the respective resources, needs, and constraints of serving these different populations? We will explore this divide and how it can be bridged at our monthly roundtable discussion.
If you have friends or colleagues you think would be interested, please forward this invitation and ask them to connect with us on our website.
