42nd Trafalgar Ross Lecture with Dawn Nakagawa, Class of 1988
presenting on the topic of "Globalization and Geopolitics"
One of the school’s most celebrated annual events: the Trafalgar–Ross Lecture brings together the entire student body and staff, along with many Old Girls, parents, friends of the school, and special guests.
The series was re-established in 1981 to honour the memory and intention of Trafalgar's founder, Donald Ross, “to bring before a large audience of students, Old Girls, parents, staff and friends of the school, a speaker of prominence and personal distinction, whose address will prove of lasting influence and inspiration for our students.”
This year’s speaker, Dawn Nakawana, a Traf graduate of 1988, is the executive Vice President of the Berggruen Institute. The mission of the organization is to deepen our understanding of the great transformations of our time and develop social and political institutions adapted to them. The key projects of the institute include the Future of Democracy, Transformations of the Human, Globalization and the New Multilateralism, and Economic Transformations. Special initiatives include the Berggruen Prize and Noema Magazine.
