Title: Rise Of Metropolitanism Rollout Event

Date Published: September 25, 2019

The growth and international clout of cities and sub-state actors has been unparalleled in recent decades. These players seek agency in the international arena, forming networks for cross-border cooperation on issues like climate change, health, transnational crime, and migration.

Please join us for a discussion of a new ISD report on The Rise of Metropolitanism: The International Order and Sub-national Actors. How will mayors, governors, and other sub-state actors both challenge and contribute to diplomacy at the national and international levels? How will these new networks find their voice in the international arena?

Date: Wednesday, September 25, 2019
Time: 4:00 – 5:30 PM
Location: Mortara Center, Georgetown University
