As the forces of economic globalization and international trade become more pervasive worldwide, corporations are playing an increasingly important role in global affairs. What is the place of multi-national corporations (MNCs) vis-à-vis nation-states in the world? What are the issues surrounding global supply chains and our increasing dependence on goods, services, and labor from around the world? Is our new global economy more vulnerable to catastrophic shutdown?
The World Affairs Council presents Barry Lynn, Senior Fellow at the New America Foundation in Washington D.C., to speak on the role of multi-national corporations (MNCs) in shaping globalization as part of the 2006 Globalization Series. Audience members will have the opportunity to participate in a question and answer session following the lecture.

He recently published the book End of the Line: The Rise and Fall of the Global Corporation, which received strong praise from The Washington Post, USA Today, and Salon. In addition to his current research at the New America Foundation, an independent, non-partisan, non-profit public policy institute, Lynn has served as executive editor of Global Business magazine and his expertise on global manufacturing has been sought by leaders in the U.S., France, India and various other nations.
