We are living in a conflicted age. Globalism and diversity are colliding with protectionism and solidarity.  How are these colliding themes influencing the planning of regions and cities?  Will devolution and independent identities create fragmented worlds or give rise to new, broader regions?  Will the governance of nations and cities become more or less democratic as a result?

Join ULI, speaker Parag Khanna, and moderator Christopher Choa for an evening of strategic thinking.
