The Boston Global Forum celebrates its 11th birthday (December 12, 2012) by honoring Governor Michael Dukakis, Co-founder and Chair of the BGF with the book “From the Massachusetts Miracle to the Age of Global Enlightenment”

Harvard Professor David Silbersweig wrote in the book:

“Governor Dukakis has been a beacon of perspective, wisdom, graciousness and integrity for the Boston Global Forum, for our state and for the world.  He has brought deep experience and ability to get right to the heart of the matter, rooted in ethics and knowledge of politics.  He has exemplified leadership and given a platform for others to lead for good.  He bridges the latest advances with age-old human nature to maximize the impact of the BGF and AIWS, in its partnership with other leading international organizations.  He reminds us all of common human decency, of how we as societies are falling short, and how we need to keep our eye on the most important elements to improve local, national and global lives.”
