Global Governance and Sustainability

Sun 7th Mar, 4pm (UK time)

Arthur Dahl

Our materialistic consumer society driving endless economic growth has now overshot planetary boundaries and is threatening our life-support systems. Multinational corporations driven solely by the profit motive are free to rape the planet, build monopoly positions and escape from taxation beyond any national control. No country can alone either solve these problems or protect itself from the damaging consequences, showing the limits to national sovereignty. Only new institutions of global environmental governance can help us to address climate change, biodiversity loss, planetary pollution and other threats and lead the restoration of the natural resources necessary for a future sustainable and ever-advancing civilisation.

Arthur Dahl is an environmental scientist specializing in coral reef ecology and a retired senior official of the United Nations Environment Programme with nearly a half century of experience in intergovernmental organizations. He is president of the International Environment Forum (https://iefworld.org), a Bahá’í-inspired professional organization for the environment and sustainability, and has devoted his life to harmonising science and religion in addressing challenges such as climate change and biodiversity loss.

His two most recent books are In Pursuit of Hope: A Guide for the Seeker (George Ronald, 2019) and Global Governance and the Emergence of Global Institutions for the 21st Century (Cambridge University Press, 2020, with Augusto Lopez-Claros and Maja Groff).

Shared Global Risk & the Prospects for Greater International Unity

Sun 28th Mar, 4pm (UK time)

Maja Groff

The international community recently observed the 75th Anniversary of the founding of the United Nations, against the backdrop of a once-in-a-century global pandemic and related economic crisis, as well as growing evidence of intensifying climate change and potentially catastrophic biodiversity loss, accelerating technology-related risks, among other inter-linked challenges. Is our existing global governance system sufficient to tackle the current international problem set? Are there prospects for greater international unity in the coming years? Taking the recent publication Global Governance and the Emergence of Global Institutions for the 21st Century as a starting point, this talk will look at a series of international risks / challenges confronted by the international community, possible enhancements to our collective problem-solving mechanisms, and the global policy shifts which might be necessary to grapple with our shared problems.

Maja Groff is an international lawyer based in The Hague, assisting in the development and servicing of multilateral treaties, also working at various international criminal tribunals (ICTY, STL), teaching at the Hague Academy of International Law and is currently a visiting scholar at Leiden University. She has worked on a wide range of existing and potential global treaties addressing contemporary human rights issues and cross-border legal cooperation, including the pioneering International Hague Network of Judges. She regularly conducts liaison work with international organisations, international professional associations, NGOs and has played a key role in the convening of international legal expert groups for the purpose of developing new international legal norms. She has drafted a wide range of international legal policy documents and published academically on private and public international law, human rights and global governance. She holds degrees from McGill (civil law and common law), Oxford and Harvard Universities, and is an attorney admitted to practice in the state of New York, formerly working in corporate law. She has served on the International Law and UN Committees of the New York City Bar Association, and the (Advisory) Boards of BCorp Europe and ebbf, organisations devoted to ethical business. She was a co-winner of the 2018 New Shape Prize for global governance innovation, and is a co-author of the 2020 book, Global Governance and the Emergence of Global Institutions for the 21st Century, published by Cambridge University Press.

The Compelling God and the Attracting God

Sun 21st Feb, 4pm (UK time)

Dr Moojan Momen

Please kindly note that materials are for personal use only: Link to presentation materials

Join us as Dr Moojan Momen examine two differing concepts of God: the first sees God as the cause of everything that happens, starting with the Creation itself and God is the ultimate cause of all events since. The second view focuses on God as the goal towards which all human beings are moving; God attracts and invites human beings to follow a path towards Him. Neither of these viewpoints is wrong; it is more a question of emphasis. The first view of God is the one that has prevailed in Western societies. Its social consequences are those of the hierarchical, competitive societies that we have. However, in the presentation, we will examine evidence that in the Baha'i teachings, it is the second view that has precedence over the first and the social consequences of that are entirely different.

Dr. Moojan Momen attended the University of Cambridge, where he studied medicine and subsequently also Arabic and Islamic Civilization. He has a special interest in the study of the Baha'i Faith and Shi`i Islam, both from the viewpoint of their history and their doctrines. In recent years, his interests have extended to the study of the phenomenon of religion. His principal publications in these fields include: Introduction to Shi`i Islam (Yale University Press, 1985); The Babi and Baha'i Faiths 1844-1944: Some Contemporary Western Accounts (George Ronald, Oxford, 1982); and The Phenomenon of Religion (OneWorld, Oxford, 1999, republished as Understanding Religion, 2008). He has contributed articles to encyclopaedias such as Encyclopedia Iranica and Encyclopedia of the Modern Islamic World as well as papers to academic journals such as International Journal of Middle East Studies, Past and Present, Iran, Iranian Studies, Journal of Genocide Research and Religion. He is a Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society.

Environment and Spirituality

Sun 7th Feb, 4pm (UK time)

Arthur Dahl

Please kindly note that materials are for personal use only: Link to presentation materials

Environmental crises like climate change, the collapse of biodiversity and the destruction of the natural resources upon which we all depend have become an existential challenge despite decades of warnings from the scientific community. The motivation and political will to act are inadequate to save ourselves, so what more is needed? Only religion and spirituality have been shown historically to touch the hearts as well as the minds and to drive large-scale transformations in human society. The Bahá’í Faith provides a modern approach to bringing us back into balance with our planetary environment.

Arthur Dahl is an environmental scientist specializing in coral reef ecology and a retired senior official of the United Nations Environment Programme with nearly a half century of experience in intergovernmental organizations. He is president of the International Environment Forum (https://iefworld.org), a Bahá’í-inspired professional organization for the environment and sustainability, and has devoted his life to harmonising science and religion in addressing challenges such as climate change and biodiversity loss.

His two most recent books are In Pursuit of Hope: A Guide for the Seeker (George Ronald, 2019) and Global Governance and the Emergence of Global Institutions for the 21st Century (Cambridge University Press, 2020, with Augusto Lopez-Claros and Maja Groff).


Bahá'í Principles as
Consumers and Entrepreneurs

Sun 24th Jan, 4pm (UK time)

Daniel Truran

Please kindly note that materials are for personal use only: Link to presentation materials

In the 25th of November letter of the Universal House of Justice we read "your efforts to succour and support one another as well as your sisters and brothers in society at large will certainly need to be sustained.” So how can we bring Baha'i principles to society at large and how can we apply them in the places where we spend most of our time: our workplaces? How can our companies become sources of hope and positive impact? And how can we use our influence as mindful consumers to reward good enterprises?

Daniel Truran is serving as director of the ebbf - ethical business building the future. ebbf is a baha’i-inspired global learning community that accompanies mindful individuals and groups, through daily work and discourse to transform business and the economy, thereby contributing to a prosperous, just and sustainable civilization. Some examples of ebbf members living their Baha’i Values at work can be found here.

Since he Declared as a Baha’i in Milan in 2001 Daniel has dedicated the last 20 years to explore and harness the connection between Baha'i values, the purpose and the actions of people and companies, inspiring and creating communities and movements that are building the future, a better, more prosperous, sustainable and just future. Besides his role at ebbf.org he is also currently B Corp ambassador at B Lab Europe and teaches at various masters and business schools.


Poverty, Inequality, Racism: Challenges for this Century

Sun 10th Jan, 4pm (UK time)

Augusto Lopez-Claros

Although we have made some progress in reducing extreme poverty over the past 30 years, it remains a serious unresolved global problem. Income inequality, likewise, has emerged as a huge economic, social and political problem, with the potential to undermine the stability of our global order. And racial prejudice, while able to separate people and induce conflict, would appear to have no scientific basis whatsoever. During His entire ministry Abdu’l-Baha referred frequently to the problem of poverty, inequality and racism and on several occasions called for the emergence of a new social and economic order that would address deep-seated injustices. He also put forward several specific proposals that would help mitigate what He regarded as a serious social and economic crisis. We will review some of the problems created by these three challenges of our time, both for policymakers and, more generally, for social cohesion and sustainable economic development. The presentation will also explore several ways in which these problems could be mitigated over the medium term, all of them within the grasp of governments everywhere, particularly in the developing world, where they have especially undesirable consequences. None of these possible remedies are getting the attention they deserve, all of them would make a great difference.

In this connection, we are delighted to have Augusto Lopez-Claros speak with us on the above themes. Mr. Lopez-Claros is an international economist with over 30 years of experience in international organisations, including most recently at the World Bank as director of the Global Indicators Group. He was also the chief economist and director of the Global Competitiveness program at the World Economic Forum in Geneva, and is also a former Resident Representative of the International Monetary Fund in Russia. He is currently the executive director of the Global Governance Forum (www.globalgovernanceforum.org)

His two most recent books are Equality for Women = Prosperity for All (St. Martin’s Press, 2018, with Bahiyyih Nakhjavani) and Global Governance and the Emergence of Global Institutions for the 21st Century (Cambridge University Press, 2020, with A. Dahl and M.Groff).

The Pen of Baháʼu'lláh - Part III

Sun 13th Dec, 4pm (UK time)

Professor Giuseppe Robiati

We are delighted to have Giuseppe Robiati present to us again. This time, he will examine the revelation of Baháʼu'lláh, share insight into His tablets and writings and take us through the history of Baháʼu'lláh's revelation.

Giuseppe (Beppe) Robiati has spent his life combining his business activities with a parallel educational and spiritual role which aims to bring the concepts of a new world order into business. Publications and lectures delivered in a number of countries around the world has allowed him to share his growing experience and expertise to an ever-wider circle of business people, civil society, professors, academics, students and Baha'i meetings. Applying his principles of ethics, the management of human resources as the mine of gems that they are, a business model that looks at the benefit of the stakeholders and the spiritual principles of Baha'u'llah, has allowed his entrepreneurial career to prosper whilst setting a practical example of actions matching words. Working with a team of collaborators, he has built extensive curricula spanning a wide range of business issues, his pillar remaining the entire concept and definition of ethical behaviour - both as a vision in a new world order and as a practical instrument in the business and socio-political field. Originally from a Catholic background, he became a Baha'i at the age of 16. He served on the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of Italy for 45 years and is also a cofounder of Ethical Business Building the Future (EBBF).

100 years after the League of Nations and the Tablet of the Hague

Sun 22th Nov, 4pm (UK time)

Augusto Lopez-Claros

Global Governance and the Emergence of Global Institutions for the 21st Century

Global Governance Website

2020 is the 75th anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations Charter by 51 nations in San Francisco. The Charter was intended to inaugurate a new era in international relations, with the United Nations at the center of a new global architecture for peace, security and human prosperity. But 2020 is also the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the League of Nations, the first attempt at establishing a framework for collective security. And it is the 100th anniversary of the Tablet to the Hague, perhaps the most comprehensive statement made by the head of the Baha'i community at the time on the subject of the establishment of world peace. This presentation will reflect on the significance of this year and what it means at this particular moment in history. In this connection, we are delighted to have Augusto Lopez-Claros speak with us on the above themes.

Mr. Lopez-Claros is an international economist with over 30 years of experience in international organisations, including most recently at the World Bank as director of the Global Indicators Group.

Systemic Racism: A Barrier to Global Peace

Sat 1st Aug 2020, 4pm (UK time)

Racism is a persistent evil and a major barrier to global peace. The Baháʼí Chair for World Peace promotes its vision of peace centered around five themes.

The Power to Transform Society

Sun 19th Jul 2020, 4pm (UK time)

Dr Moojan Momen

We are delighted to welcome back Dr Moojan Momen to help us examine what is this power that can transform society. He will examine problems of the old world order and why many previous attempts (like the French and the various communist revolutions) to change it have failed, echoing the words of Baháʼu'lláh that "the prevailing order appeareth to be lamentably defective". He will also look at some of the activities of the present day Bahá'í community and the social structures they are building that help solve these problems.

Dr. Moojan Momen attended the University of Cambridge, where he studied medicine and subsequently also Arabic and Islamic Civilization. He has a special interest in the study of the Baha'i Faith and Shi`i Islam, both from the viewpoint of their history and their doctrines. In recent years, his interests have extended to the study of the phenomenon of religion. His principal publications in these fields include: Introduction to Shi`i Islam (Yale University Press, 1985); The Babi and Baha'i Faiths 1844-1944: Some Contemporary Western Accounts (George Ronald, Oxford, 1982); and The Phenomenon of Religion (OneWorld, Oxford, 1999, republished as Understanding Religion, 2008). He has contributed articles to encyclopaedias such as Encyclopedia Iranica and Encyclopedia of the Modern Islamic World as well as papers to academic journals such as International Journal of Middle East Studies, Past and Present, Iran, Iranian Studies, Journal of Genocide Research and Religion. He is a Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society.
