The EDGE seminar series was started over twenty years ago. It draws speakers from Stanford and around the world who deal with the real world issues of War and Peace (Autumn), Trade and the Environment (Winter) and Poverty and Prejudice (Spring). Through the talks and following discussions, EDGE gets to the issues behind the headlines, seeking a deeper understanding for students who will deal with these issues during their careers.
EDGE seeks international and multicultural viewpoints to highlight sources of inequality and strife in a world with shrinking resources and growing demand. Through the talks, discussions and workshops students will identify and recommend solutions to important issues. The workshops conduct indepth studies of the EDGE topics and produce focused papers. The best of the studies are publised as a series of journals to contribution to world understanding and provide continuity from year to year.
