    Is the Liberal World Order Ending? The 33rd Annual Norris and Margery Bendetson EPIIC International Symposium

    7:00 PM – 10:00 PM

    The international symposium is an annual public forum designed and enacted by EPIIC students. It features international practitioners, academics, public intellectuals, activists and journalists who come to Tufts each year for three days of discussion and debate in panels and small-group discussions determined by students in the EPIIC course. The Boston Globe made this assessment of the EPIIC Symposium: “At a time when the national discourse seems forever reduced to its lowest common denominator…to sound bites and slogans…EPIIC is a refreshing antidote. Far from looking to simplify the world, the symposium aims to teach students to view life in a way that respects complex human systems.”
