Symposium: Life and Justice in America: Implications of the New Administration

The 15th SSASA symposium, entitled “Life and Justice in America: Implications of the New Administration”, will take place at Salzburg Global Seminar, Schloss Leopoldskron, on 22-26 September, 2017.

Drawing on the seventy years of cross-border exchange that began at Schloss Leopoldskron in the aftermath of the war, this multi-disciplinary conversation will examine what the “American Dream” means in today’s world and assess progress in the United States towards fulfilling that potential. Participants will discuss the quality of life and sense of justice in the United States from a contemporary perspective, including the domestic and global implications of the new administation in a visibly polarized society.
