Grants to this Grantee
for the New Social Compact project at the Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor
The Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor at Georgetown University develops creative strategies and innovative policies to improve workers’ lives. Its New Social Compact project envisions, defines, and establishes the foundation for a new social contract that centers equity and inclusion in a post-neoliberal economy and society. The program’s June 2022 virtual global gathering will help lay the groundwork for large-scale, innovative structural change by focusing on pandemic-era worker activism and its intersections with health, housing, education, climate, care, race, and gender. The program has a diverse 46-member Advisory and Organizing Committee, and the conference will engage broad audiences across the globe.
for the Global Political Economy Project
The Global Political Economy Project is leading a reimagining of how we study and engage with global markets in a post-neoliberal era. Led by faculty at Georgetown University’s Mortara Center for International Studies, it is catalysing innovative, policy-relevant scholarship that explores the politics of global markets and inequality, race and social identities, sustainability, digital technologies, and geopolitical power dynamics. The project’s activities are based around three pillars — generating new ideas, building a new scholarly infrastructure, and engaging with policy practioners and the public — to build a more inclusive and sustainable version of globalization.
for the CyberAI program
Launched in 2020, Georgetown University’s Center for Security and Emerging Technology’s (CSET) CyberAI project focuses on the intersection of AI, cybersecurity, and geopolitics. CyberAI is examining what the advent of powerful AI systems means for cybersecurity, with a focus on three areas: (a) AI’s potential to alter the current state of cybersecurity, (b) the potential failure modes and vulnerabilities of AI applications for cyber, and (c) geostrategic competition centered around cyber and AI. Planned research will examine how machine learning techniques can enhance cybersecurity more broadly, how other nations are pursuing AI and cyber advances and the risks this pursuit could have on strategic stability, the increased risk of unique failures in the development and application of AI techniques for cybersecurity, and how AI capabilities may alter the future course of disinformation campaigns.
