During the last five years, we have witnessed unprecedented upheavals that have pitted the principles of democracy, multiculturalism, and respect for human dignity against often intransigent political and religious positions. Concurrently, the economic crisis affecting several countries within the European Union has caused increased unrest within and beyond the EU. Speakers will address the crisis of modernity from the local to the multi-national levels, comparing developments around the world, and examining problems and proposed solutions. “Modern Societies in Crisis: Global Challenges and Solutions” will enhance the community's understanding of current political and economic upheavals and their effects on New Mexico and the Southwest.
