To follow up the 2020 Congress “Global Justice and Sovereignty” and the 2020 “Global Response to Crisis” Roundtables, Academics Stand Against Poverty (Yale’s ASAP) and Juris North will be working together again in 2022. We plan to have a set of three thematic roundtables running between April and June and a final Congress in September 2022.
