The Education, Democracy and Human Rights Deep Dive examined the role of education in promoting democracy in the United States and advancing global human rights. Professor Fernando Reimers of the Harvard Graduate School of Education chaired the Deep Dive, convening faculty and nonprofit leaders from across Harvard and around the country.
The Deep Dive presented ALI Fellows with a broad menu of topics and viewpoints, ranging from historical accounts of democracy and religious diversity in the US to the latest research on social-emotional learning and early childhood development.
ALI Faculty Co-Chairs Howard Koh and Meredith Rosenthal led the 2018 Health and the Role of Business Deep Dive.
The Deep Dive showed ALI Fellows the important role that businesses can play in addressing public health issues. The two-day conference also gave Fellows an opportunity to think about creating systems-level change. Over the course of the Deep Dive, Fellows heard from faculty across Harvard, business leaders from around the world, and experts in public health.
The 2018 Climate Change Deep Dive presented ALI Fellows with a multi-faceted view of the causes, consequences, and potential solutions for climate change. The Deep Dive was led by ALI Co-Chair Forest Reinhardt of Harvard Business School (HBS). The Deep Dive also featured speakers from Harvard’s John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), the Harvard Law School (HLS), Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS), the Harvard Divinity School (HDS), and the United States Military.
As a result of the Deep Dive, Fellows gained a better understanding of the complicated problems underlying climate change, and the need for a cross-sector approach to develop pragmatic solutions.
