Columbia Global Reports and the Committee On Global Thought welcome Atossa Araxia Abrahamian, acclaimed novelist Joseph O'Neill (The Dog, Netherland), and Columbia University Professor of Anthropology Rosalind C. Morris. Nicholas Lemann, director of Columbia Global Reports, will moderate a panel discussion on global citizenship, statelessness, and Abrahamian;s debut book The Cosmopolites: The Coming of the Global Citizen.

The buying and selling of citizenship has become a thriving business in just a few years. Entrepreneurs and libertarians are renouncing America and Europe in favor of tax havens like Singapore and the Caribbean. But as journalist Atossa Araxia Abrahamian discovered, the story of twenty-first-century citizenship is bigger than millionaires seeking their next passport.
