World Leaders Forum: Student Essays World Leaders Forum

Released: November 2005
Archived, no longer available.

Six graduate students from Columbia's School of International and Public Affairs and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences were sponsored by CCNMTL to produce multimedia essays in response to the speeches of Pervez Musharraf, President of Pakistan, and Jalal Talabani, President of Iraq, during the 2005 World Leaders Forum at Columbia University. These essays were created using Video Interactions for Teaching and Learning (VITAL), a video analysis tool.

Established in 2003 by Lee C. Bollinger, the World Leaders Forum is a year-round event series aimed to advance lively, uninhibited dialogue on the large economic, political, and social questions of our time.
