The Crucible of Citizenship

Tuesday, January 14, 2020
Hauck Auditorium, Stanford University

America was a multiracial, multilanguage, multireligion mixing bowl even before it was the United States. Debates over immigration and citizenship have been part of the American landscape from the start. Citizenship and its most important component— voting rights—have been the most frequent topic of constitutional amendments over the years. Panelists will discuss what it means to be a citizen and what it means to be an American.

A Century Of Ideas: Labor And Capital Market Policy: From Ideas To Actions Over One Hundred Years

Tuesday, November 19, 2019

Enormous technological, political, and demographic shifts in the past one hundred years have changed what is feasible and what works in practice. Panelists will discuss how ideas about the roles of government and private enterprise have changed, how good ideas stressing economic freedom can be advanced into action, and the influence of globalization on the ability of governments to apply good ideas to capital flows and immigration.

Indigenous Capital, Growth, and Property Rights: The Legacy of Colonialism

Sunday, November 17, 2019 to Tuesday, November 19, 2019
Hoover Institution, Stanford University

Capital investment and property rights are generally considered Western concepts exported in the era of European empire building, but pre-colonial evidence from Africa and the Americas suggest that capital investment and property rights are part of the human experience. Europeans assumed the societies they encountered in the Americas lacked the institutions and intellect necessary to fuel economic growth. Careful examination of pre-colonial and colonial societies, however, offer a different perspective—a perspective that sheds light on how indigenous people around the world can renew their economies from the ground up, rather than answering the “siren call of federal handouts."

Governance In An Emerging New World: Emerging Technology And Nuclear Non-Proliferation

Tuesday, November 5, 2019
Hauck Auditorium, Hoover Institution, Stanford University

The existential threat posed by nuclear weapons is unique, and states have continuously managed that risk across decades of profound global change.

Leaders from the Nuclear Threat Initiative will explore potential impacts on nuclear proliferation challenges and on counter-proliferation strategies, and panelists will consider the particular risks in the India-Pakistan nuclear standoff.

The Hoover Institution hosts a public panel discussion "Emerging Technology and Nuclear Non-Proliferation" on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 from 4:00pm - 5:15pm PST. The event will be livestreamed and can be viewed below.
