Internationally acclaimed scholar, political theorist and lecturer Dr. Benjamin R. Barber explores what being "citizens of the world" means in terms of good citizenship. "Are there obligations to our fellow global citizens – ethical behaviors that determine our citizen-worthiness on Planet Earth?" the college explains.
Barber is the founder and president of CivWorld, a global interdependence initiative based in New York at Dēmos, "a policy, research and advocacy center dedicated to generating new ideas and catalyzing social change to help everyone achieve the American dream," the college says.
He also was part of a group of intellectuals, political leaders and artists from a dozen nations who wrote a "Declaration of Interdependence" after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and founded Interdependence Day, observed on Sept. 12 to seek alternatives to terrorism.
