On May 27, 2021, at launching the book, Governor Michael Dukakis, Co-founder and Chair of Boston Global Forum, presented remarks, made a significant point that resonated with discussions, stating that we should “marry our thinkers with our doers”.
“That’s essentially why we’re here isn’t it? To see if we can marry our thinkers with our doers in a way that makes them thinker-doers. That it doesn’t isolate that knowledge in a corner in some place and make it something unusual, difficult and not applicable. And that’s the big challenge”.
He raised the role of the United Nations for global peace, security, and prosperity today and future.
Governor Michael Dukakis, Professor Thomas Patterson, and Mr. Nguyen Anh Tuan contributed a special chapter: using AI and Digital to innovate, reform politics and make a smart democracy.
