There are numerous opinions and insights on the current conflict in Ukraine, but why did this massive disruption occur at this time?
We invite you to join HBS Professor Rawi Abdelal for an in-depth discussion of his view on the origins of the conflict in Ukraine, why it happened now, how that matters and what might come next. Professor Abdelal will share insights based on his extensive research of Russia, Ukraine, the politics of oil and gas, and sanctions. He has written case studies about the Russian government after the fall of the Soviet Union, energy politics in Europe, and modern-day Ukraine.
This will be a hybrid event, where Professor Abdelal will join via zoom with a virtual and in-person audience (in Singapore). A 45-minute presentation will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A session. We cordially invite you to join us in person or via Zoom. Note that this session will not be recorded.

The book “Too Small to Fail: Why Some Small Nations Outperform Larger Ones and How They Are Reshaping the World” (Harper Collins):
Small, nimble, successful nations such as Singapore took nine out of the top ten spots in IMD’s most recent Global Competitiveness Report. The same nations dominate rankings among other important metrics, such as innovation, PISA scores, CO2 emissions, even happiness. Singapore features prominently in the book; veteran diplomat and Ambassador-at-Large Prof Tommy Koh wrote the preface.
Author James Breiding also wrote Swiss Made – the untold story behind Switzerland’s success. Available in seven languages, the book has become the most authoritative work on ‘Swissness’. His writing on Swiss issues appear in The Economist, Financial Times, Foreign Affairs, New York Times, and Wall Street Journal. He was elected a fellow at Harvard’s Centre for International Development, and is the founder and owner of Naissance Capital, a Zurich investment firm.

Join us for ‘Emily of Emerald Hill‘, the grand opening show to Wild Rice’s new home at the Funan Mall! CAA Singapore is teaming up with the Harvard University Association of Alumni in Singapore (HUAAS) and the Penn & Wharton Club of Singapore to bring you exclusive tickets, and you’re invited!
“Ivan Heng is one of Singapore’s most acclaimed actors. Glen Goei is one of Singapore’s most celebrated directors. Together, they bring to life one of Singapore theatre’s most iconic characters: Emily Gan, an abandoned girl who overcomes all odds to emerge as the matriarch of a distinguished Peranakan household. Evoking the golden age of Straits-Chinese culture from the 1930s, this new production promises to be the most immersive version of Stella Kon’s enduring classic yet. Step into our theatre and become one of Emily’s guests in her opulent, meticulously kept mansion…In this decadent world, fulfillment for a woman can only be found in her roles as a daughter-in-law, wife, mother and home-maker. So what must she do to succeed? And at what cost? Is Emily a woman trapped by tradition, or a feminist ahead of her time? In 2000, Ivan Heng founded WILD RICE with an electrifying production of this landmark play, in which he first made Emily Gan his own. We can think of nothing more appropriate to commemorate WILD RICE’s new home.”
“A moving, funny and accomplished piece of theatre.” – The Age, Melbourne
“This was a funny, camp, and touching performance, quite deserving of its full house.” – South China Morning Post, Hong Kong
“When Glen Goei and Ivan Heng come together in the name of Art, any play can be expected to deliver wit and sensitivity.” – 8 DAYS, Singapore
Date and time: Saturday, September 14 at 2:30pm
Location: Wild Rice @ Funan Mall, 107 North Bridge Rd, Singapore 179105
Costs: S$70 for members; S$80 for non-members (Usual ticket price: S$84)
