This meeting is concerned in great part with policy studies, with thinking about the future of the human race and the biosphere of the planet Earth. In looking at the longer-term future, many of us might divide the various issues into categories such as military and diplomatic issues; or political issues, ideological issues, environmental issues, human health, and wellness issues, family issues, demographic issues, economic issues, technological issues, governance issues, issues of democracy and human rights, and so forth.

This meeting, held on April 7 – 9, 2005, is organized by Prof. David Fromkin and sponsored by the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future.
