Featuring new and largely unpublished work, this one-day conference sets up a dialogue between designers and social scientists. By connecting fine-grained micro studies with broader imaginations for the metropolitan region, we intend to open up new scalar possibilities for Mumbai.

From July 30 to August 3, the South Asia Initiative (SAI) at Harvard University hosted a “Multidisciplinary Approach to University Leadership Development” Workshop for university leaders from Maharashtra, India. Thirty leaders and policy makers attended, including vice chancellors, directors, principals and deans of both public and private higher learning institutions, as well as senior Government of Maharashtra officials. The idea for the workshop came out of a fall 2011 visit to Harvard by Rajendra Tope, Minister of Higher and Technical Education for the Government of Maharashtra.
This workshop, a first of its kind for SAI, was a huge success. The visiting leaders engaged closely with faculty and staff, actively discussing ways in which they could bring ideas from the workshop back to their institutions. Harvard faculty and staff from across the university challenged the participants to rethink their understandings of university culture, learning approaches, research, liberal arts education, library science, technology and funding.

A Guest Lecture by: Her Excellency Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga – Former President of Sri Lanka (1994-2005)
Opening Remarks by Daniel Shapiro, Director, Harvard International Negotiation Program
For over two decades, ethnopolitical conflict tore at the seams of Sri Lanka. Civil war between the two main ethnic groups – the Sinhalese and the Tamils- threatened the stability of this small island country. Amidst waves of violence, President Kumaratunga sought a political solution through negotiation and ceasefire agreements. Join us to hear firsthand how President Kumaratunga navigated the emotional and identity-based complexities of the conflict, as well as the interplay of religion, culture, and ethnicity.
