Where: Life Sciences Center at Dartmouth College, 15 Dewey Field Road 

About the lecture: Geography and the longest border on the planet between two countries have created a relationship between the United States and Canada that has been vital for their security and economic well-being. Despite U.S. dominance in the relationship - as a result of size and scale - the very different histories of the two countries have resulted in contrasting notions of the modern nation state, the role of government and how it should behave in a rapidly globalizing world. These differences seem to be widening in the age of Trump and Trudeau, two leaders who seem to represent the two dominant forces increasingly in conflict in today's world, namely conservative populism and strengthening liberal democracy. This annual OSHER@Dartmouth Lecture by Joseph Ingram will examine these national differences and what outcomes they are likely to produce for both societies.

Joseph K. Ingram is former president of the North-South Institute based in Ottawa, Canada's first non-partisan policy research institution dedicated to international development. He is former Special Representative of the World Bank to the United Nations and the World Trade Organization. Over the course of a 30 year career at the World Bank, he held a number of management positions in, among others, Africa and the Balkans (Bosnia and Herzegovina). He currently advises the Canadian government on key development-related issues and is co-chair of a South African investment firm that focuses on renewable energy in sub-Saharan Africa. Mr. Ingram is a prolific author. He holds an M.A. in political economy and studied at McMaster University and the Harvard Business school.

This lecture is free and open to the public. Thursday, November 15 at 4:00 pm at Dartmouth's Life Sciences Center, 15 Dewey Field Road, Hanover.
