Event hosted by Policy Studies will address ‘The Seven Resolutions’

The Policy Studies program will host a lecture by Erik Peterson from the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) on “The Seven Resolutions” at 11 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, in Hugel Science Center, room 100.

The lecture, which is taking place in conjunction with the course Industry, Strategy, & Policy taught by Mark Crain, Simon Professor of Political Economy and chair of policy studies, is open to all Lafayette students.

Peterson’s lecture will specifically address the Seven Revolutions, an initiative that considers the long-term implications of global trends in the world. The project lists seven trends that will make change to the year 2025. These areas include population, resource management, technology innovation and diffusion, information and knowledge creation and dissemination, economic integration, conflict, and governance.

Peterson is the senior vice president of CSIS, William A. Schreyer Chair in Global Analysis, and director of the Global Strategy Institute. CSIS serves as a strategic planning partner for the government by conducting research and developing policy initiatives that look into the future and anticipate change. CSIS strives to advance security and prosperity on a global scale.

Peterson has spoken to numerous groups and has lectured in 14 countries. He received his M.B.A. from the Wharton school, his M.A. from the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, and his B.A. from Colby College.
