The “Kyiv School of Economics” (KSE) Charitable Foundation invites you to the charity dinner "The Ukrainian Independence War and the Future of the World."
The dinner will be held at the Harvard Club (35 West 44th Street, Manhattan, New York, New York, 10036) on Saturday, September 17th, 2022, at 6:30 pm.
This event will change you. The war in Ukraine will no longer be abstract. It will help you understand how this war affects you and everyone in the world.
Some events, like war, can be understood only in all their complexity. We will bring the intensity and the emotions of the war in Ukraine to the audience of the charity dinner. The dinner will also illustrate the implications of the war for the global political and economic context and will outline possible future scenarios.
Speakers (will be updated):
Dr. Roger Myerson, Nobel Prize Winner in Economics '07; David L. Pearson Distinguished Service Professor of Global Conflict Studies at The Pearson Institute for the Study and Resolution of Global Conflicts in the Harris School of Public Policy, the Griffin Department of Economics, and the college at the University of Chicago; and the chair of the KSE University Academic Board.
Igor Lutsenko, KSE alum, serves in intelligence (drone surveillance) on the front lines in the East and prior to that, fought in the Battle of Kyiv. In 2014, Igor was among the leaders of the Revolution of Dignity. He survived the kidnapping by the pro-Russian death squad (his partner did not) and was later elected to the Ukrainian parliament.
Dr. Yuriy Gorodnichenko, Quantedge Presidential Professor of Economics University of California, Berkeley; top-3 most cited young economists in the world
Dr. Tymofiy Mylovanov, KSE President, minister of economy of Ukraine from 2019-2020, and current advisor to the administration of the President of Ukraine.
Proceeds from ticket sales for this event and auction will be directed towards rebuilding clinics in Ukrainian territories liberated from russian troops.
