Global Reads: AKFC Book Club

Event Summary

Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC) is pleased to invite you to join our monthly book club series: Global Reads.

Event Details

In this book club, we will explore a recent literary work focused on international affairs, policy, or practice—with an emphasis on innovation, new voices, and diverse perspectives. Notable leaders and thinkers from the international affairs, global development, and allied sectors will facilitate lively and inclusive discussions, providing a structure for collaborative interpretation, learning, and growth.  There will be an opportunity to ask questions during a Q&A session as well as connect with other attendees during the session.

Join us in April for a lively discussion with Thomas Wright, co-author of our book of the month:

Aftershocks: Pandemic Politics and the End of the Old International Order.

The discussion will be led by Christopher MacLennan (Deputy Minister of International Development, Global Affairs Canada).

Join Global Reads to:

  • Forge new connections with likeminded, globally focused thinkers
  • Encounter inspiring, challenging, and unconventional ideas
  • Gain a fresh perspective on your work and/or your interest in international development
  • Reignite your professional development goals
