The Jeanne Sauvé Forum Series on Social Connectedness and International Development was created by Kim Samuel in collaboration with the Jeanne Sauvé Foundation. This ongoing series of lectures explores the root causes of social isolation, along with strategies for building social connectedness and community through policy and program development. The series began in the fall of 2016 with weekly discussions at the historic Jeanne Sauvé House in Montreal covering a variety of topics, from the ongoing refugee crisis to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and reconciliation with Indigenous peoples. The series is also closely linked with Professor Samuel’s fourth-year seminar course on social connectedness at McGill University, the first of its kind. All events are moderated by Kim Samuel, Professor of Practice at McGill University’s Institute for the Study of International Development; President, The Samuel Family Foundation.
