Webinar with Navid Sabet
A recording of this session is available on our Vimeo channel.
Today, we live in an age of transition characterized by increasing social, political and economic instability. And as policy makers and academics attempt to offer solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges, the models and paradigms that shape much of the discourse on public policy issues do not take into consideration the spiritual or moral dimensions of human existence. Accordingly, one may be led to question the value of participating in discourses aimed at informing policy decisions: after all, such discourses often rely on theories and models which are simplifications of the world around us and social reality is anything but simple. How, then, can the Revelation guide our participation in discourses where policy evolves? The goal of this webinar is to explore these questions by thinking in terms of the conceptual framework that guides the Bahá’í activity around the world .
Navid Sabet holds an MPA in Public and Economic Policy from the London School of Economics. Prior to his studies, he served for four years in the Office of social and Economic Development at the Bahá’í World Centre.
