Event Description

This is a nonpartisan forum of six conversations featuring high-profile speakers from both sides of the political divide addressing some of the most pressing issues of our time through ethical, multi-faceted debate. Shades of Red and Blue takes place at that great symbol of democracy—the New York Public Library.

SHADES OF RED AND BLUE has been convened by three nonpartisan not-for-profits—The Ethics CentreCarnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, and Bard Globalization and International Affairs Program—to respond to the worrying trend that the democratic tradition of spirited and robust debate has degraded into name-calling and rude indifference and is eroding the civility and respect that underpins the human capacity for sincere and principled disagreement.

Speakers include Salman RushdieThomas M. NicholsAnne-Marie SlaughterJohn W. DeanLeon BotsteinJamil Dakwar, and more.
