Professor Fry will focus on specific challenges and solutions for the citizens of Europe and the U.S. as he discusses how the transatlantic community reacts to the “triple combination” of globalization, unprecedented technology change, and economic disruption.
In his lecture, Professor Fry will make a strong case for growing transatlantic cooperation to solve problems common to humanity, problems beyond the capacity of any one nation to solve unilaterally.
