Date: November 11, 2014 9:00am-5:30pm
Location: Columbia Law School, Jerome Greene Annex
The closed roundtable sessions provided the opportunity to consider whether, and if so, why, certain good governance efforts may be more advanced in one sector than in the other, and what could be done to further advance governance initiatives in both sectors. The conversation focused primarily on legal and policy frameworks and initiatives that promote good governance, as well as good governance initiatives to maximize the benefits to communities. Participants also explored potential ways to follow up the discussion with collaborative research or on-going exchange.
