NYUAD Institute Announces Fall Public Event Lineup

Now in its third year, the NYU Abu Dhabi Institute — which serves as NYUAD's public forum and research arm — has announced its fall lineup of public programs. Beginning tonight with "Global Finance After the Crisis," a lecture led by Ingo Walter, vice dean of Stern School of Business and Finance at NYU New York, the lineup includes events that will examine a wide range of topics, such as information security and privacy, public policy in developing countries, and the role of ethics in science.

In addition to bringing together faculty and students from institutions of higher learning throughout the region, the public programs establish "an outlet for intellectual discourse and knowledge exchange within the Abu Dhabi community," said Philip Kennedy, faculty director at the NYUAD Institute, something that has been a priority for NYUAD.
