Report on Talloires Network Leaders Conference, Madrid June 2011

 We are pleased to release an illustrated report on the Talloires Network Leaders Conference held in Madrid in June 2011. The conference brought together 215 vice-chancellors, rectors, presidents and other senior staff for three days of vigorous, energizing exchange. The document states, “This report is an attempt to capture some of the richness of that debate. The themes include whether there is a North-South divide in civic engagement, how universities can promote civic engagement, their role in processes of political transition, democratization and post conflict peace-building as well as what institutions are doing in areas such as technology and social change, access and widening participation, sustainable development and response to natural disasters.”

Network Director Rob Hollister comments, “We encourage TN members and others to use this report to build support for our global movement, and to motivate and guide action on the recommendations for action that we developed together in Madrid. Please let us know what your institutions is doing to implement goals of the Madrid Resolution so that we can share that news and experience with others in the Network.”
