Report on Talloires Network Leaders Conference, Madrid June 2011
The report on the Talloires Network Leaders Conference held in Madrid in June 2011 was released this month.
The conference brought together 215 vice-chancellors, rectors, presidents and other senior staff for three days of vigorous, energizing exchange. This report is an attempt to capture some of the richness of that debate. The themes include whether there is a North-South divide in civic engagement, how universities can promote civic engagement, their role in processes of political transition, democratization and post conflict peace-building as well as what institutions are doing in areas such as technology and social change, access and widening participation, sustainable development and response to natural disasters.
