(3) Progress, social stability, and change.

 

Keynote speeches will be given by (1) Mahzarin R. Banaji, who is the Richard Clarke Cabot Professor of Social Ethics in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University, and (2) Noelle Damico, who is a Senior Fellow of the National Economic and Social Rights Initiative.
