Our Director of Research and Public Policy, Robert Muggah, will be presenting at TEDGlobal 2014 South on Wed Oct 8, 2014.
Robert, a Megacities Expert, drills down through shadowy data on arms trafficking, urban violence and resilience in search of answers for a rapidly urbanizing society’s most troubling questions: Why are cities so violent, and increasingly fragile? Why are conflicts within nations replacing conflicts between them? And what strategies can we implement to reduce violence?
Robert will be presenting on the rise of the fragile city. His talk will take place from 11:30 – 1:00 at the conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
