Global Civics (2012)

Uploaded by Açık Toplum Vakfı on 2012-09-28.

The documentary consists of interviews in nine separate countries. Open-ended questions are posed to participants in order to gain a broad international perspective of global civics. This approach leads to insights that range from the cynical pragmatism of the inhabitants of a Brazilian favela, to the optimism of United Nations staff, the philosophical musings of American students, and the structured thoughts of Buddhist scholars. (Argentina, Brazil, China, Germany, India, Italy, Turkey, South Africa, and the United States)
