Paths for Reconstruction in the 21st Century

Marcus Raskin

Marc directs IPS’s Paths for the 21st Century Project. This includes producing a multi-volume book examining international organizations and politics, reviewing what we have learned from the 20th century of an emancipatory and liberatory nature to serve as guides for new models of equality and alternatives for the 21st century on questions of peace, economic and social justice, cultural rights, democratic reconstruction, and racial and gender equality. He is also currently serving as a professor at George Washington University.

Prior to founding IPS, Marc was a member of the special staff of the National Security Council in President Kennedy’s administration. He has served as advisor to the Episcopal Urban Bishops and as co-chair of the Issues Commission of the Progressive Alliance, a group of 150 public interest and labor organizations. He has also served as a member of a Presidential Commission on Education and advisor to the Bureau of the Budget and the Office of Science and Technology in the Executive Office of the President.
