Civil Disagreement Series with Doris Meissner and Reihan Salam


Thursday, November 7, 2019, 5:00pm to 6:30pm


Harvard Commons, Richard A and Susan F. Smith Campus Center


The Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, with generous support from the Office of the President, is launching a new conversation series called the Civil Disagreement Series. These moderated conversations will bring together policy and subject experts from different political viewpoints to discuss a current-events topic. Our goal is to hold conversations that people may feel they can’t otherwise have, and model thoughtful, reflective engagement on hard issues in which we can learn about one another’s views. The Civil Disagreement talks will also exhibit to the public beyond the campus that the university supports productive conversations on fraught subjects that involve a wide diversity of viewpoints. 

Our first event on November 7th will be a conversation on immigration with Doris Meissner, Senior Fellow and Director of the U.S. Immigration Policy Program at the Migration Policy Institute, and Reihan Salam, Executive Director of National Review and President of the Manhattan Institute. This conversation will be moderated by Danielle Allen
