The Jackson Institute invites applications to GLBL 640, Philanthropy and Global Affairs, with Eric Braverman.

Every year, philanthropies spend more than $150 billion worldwide on causes ranging from food security to economic inequality to scientific research. More than a trillion dollars in assets remain uncommitted. Which roles do these organizations play in the practice of global affairs? Which laws, or business norms, or societal/cultural expectations govern and shape their activities? What are the most essential decisions that a leader in philanthropy must make in deciding how and where to spend in the context of a global system where business and government hold most of the resources? This seminar takes a leader’s perspective in examining how to set a philanthropic agenda, identify opportunities and mitigate risk, develop partnerships across sectors, and both review and develop real proposals for how resources can be deployed to address major global challenges.

Classes will be held Fridays from 8:30am-12:00pm. The deadline to apply is January 3, 2020, at 12 noon.
