The EU Growth Challenge and the Investment Plan for Europe
April 20, 2015 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm EDT
Columbia University Morningside Campus Jerome Greene Hall, Room 107

European growth has been in stagnation since the financial crisis of 2007-2009. But Europe is suffering not only from low growth. Even more worryingly, its long-term growth potential is in decline. For two decades, investment has been too low, and arguably much went to the wrong sectors. This has undermined productivity, hampering Europe's growth potential and putting its competitiveness at risk.

Debora Revoltella, Chief Economist of the European Investment Bank, will present the need for an investment plan for Europe, focusing on competitiveness enhancing investments. Her analysis will focus on research within the European Investment Bank and how this research inspired the development of the EU Investment Plan - the Juncker Plan.

The event is sponsored by the Program in Economic Policy Management, the Center on Global Economic Governance and the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment.

Financial Engineering Practitioners Seminar: Prof. Martin Haugh
April 20, 2015 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm EDT
Davis Auditorium, CEPSR Building

Title: Tax-Aware Dynamic Asset Allocation

Abstract: We consider dynamic asset allocation problems where the investor is required to pay capital gains taxes on her investment gains. This is a very challenging problem because the tax to be paid whenever a security is sold depends on the tax basis, i.e. the price(s) at which the security was originally purchased. This feature results in high-dimensional and path-dependent problems which cannot be solved exactly except in the case of very stylized problems with just one or two securities and relatively few time periods. We develop several sub-optimal trading policies for these problems and use duality techniques based on information relaxations to assess their performances. Our numerical experiments consider problems with as many as 20 securities and 20 time periods. The principal contribution of this paper is in demonstrating that much larger problems can now be tackled through the use of sophisticated optimization techniques and duality methods based on information-relaxations.

If Global Warming Is So Urgent, Why Is There So Little Action? - A Talk with Per Espen Stoknes
April 21, 2015 from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm EDT
Columbia University, Morningside Campus, Uris Hall, Room 301

The Earth Institute's Center for Research on Environmental Decisions (CRED) presents "What We Think About When We Try Not To Think About Global Warming," with Per Espen Stoknes, Author, Psychologist and Economist. 

Book Description
The more facts that pile up about global warming, the greater the resistance to them grows, making it harder to enact measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare communities for the inevitable change ahead.

Rich in story and examples, Stoknes reviews recent psychological research and explores emerging strategies for how to overcome this paradox. A more compassionate climate communication can now rely on approaches that employ the power of social networks, reframing, nudging, storytelling and better climate response indicators. Also, the acknowledgement of grief, helplessness and despair can be a deep source of motivation for a grounded hope. Stoknes seeks to answer the fundamental questions: Is humanity up to the task? Or are we humans inescapably locked into short-termism?

In What We Think About When We Try Not to Think About Global Warming, Stoknes not only masterfully identifies the five main psychological barriers to climate action, but addresses them with five strategies for how to talk about global warming in a way that creates action and solutions, not further inaction and despair.

About Per Espen Stoknes

Per Espen Stoknes is a psychologist and an economist. An entrepreneur, he has co-founded clean-energy companies, and he spearheads the BI Norwegian Business School’s executive program on green growth. He has previously worked both as a clinical and organizational psychologist and as an advisor in scenario planning to a wide range of major national and international businesses, government agencies, and nonprofit institutions. His research interests include climate and environmental strategies, economic psychology, and energy systems. Teaching areas include green growth, foresight and corporate strategy, behavioral economics and expressive arts. He has written three books, including Money and Soul. He lives in Oslo, Norway.

Open to the public. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Emerging Powers and Conflict Management: Lessons from Central Asia
April 21, 2015 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm EDT
Columbia University Morningside Campus International Affairs Building, Room 1512

The international management of internal armed conflicts is becoming a primary area of dispute in world politics. At the global level, the UN Security Council has become deadlocked over the appropriate international response to rebellions and civil wars, including those in Sudan, Sri Lanka, Libya, Syria, and Ukraine. At a domestic level, states such as Russia and China have rejected international liberal norms and practices and managed internal conflicts through alternative mechanisms. Meanwhile, in post-conflict environments, such as Angola, Cambodia, Tajikistan or Rwanda, international peace interventions constructed within a liberal peacebuilding framework have given way to authoritarian political outcomes. An array of non-liberal norms, discourses and practices in relation to peace and conflict have gained ground, both within local spaces of armed conflict and at global sites of policy contestation.  This panel of distinguished international scholars and practitioners of peace-building will examine the implications for the rise of such “illiberal practices” in the management of conflicts in post-Soviet Central Asia and critically evaluate the implications of this turn to “authoritarian conflict management.”

Chair: Alexander Cooley

Panelists: David Lewis and John Heathershaw

Discussants: Severine Autesserre and Christoph Zuercher
 
Severine Autesserre is Assistant Professor of Political Science, specializing in international relations and African studies, at Barnard College, Columbia University.

John Heathershaw is Associate Professor in International Relations at the University of Exeter and Principal Investigator (2012-2016) of the ESRC Research Project ‘Rising Powers and Conflict Management in Central Asia’.

David Lewis is Senior Lecturer in Politics at the University of Exeter, UK. He previously held academic posts in the Department of Peace Studies, University of Bradford, and worked at the Brussels-based think-tank, the International Crisis Group, where he led research projects in Central Asia and Sri Lanka. David’s current research focuses on the impact of geopolitical change on international peace and conflict. He is Co-Investigator on a major research project, Rising Powers and Conflict Management in Central Asia (2012-2016), which examines Russian, Chinese and Western responses to conflict in Central Asia. His other main research interests are in the politics, security, and economic development of post-Soviet authoritarian states in Eurasia.

Christoph Zürcher is a professor at  the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Ottawa.  His research and teaching interests include conflict, peacebuilding, and international development. His regional focus is on the Former Soviet Union especially on Russia, the Caucasus, and Central Asia including Afghanistan. He is the editor of “Potentials of Disorder. Explaining Violence in the Caucasus and in the Former Yugoslavia” (Manchester UP, 2003) and the author of “The Post-Soviet Wars: Rebellion, Ethnic Conflict and Nationhood in the Post-Soviet Era (New York: University Press, 2007) and Costly Democracy.
