This paper starst with a brief historical account of what happened in the world after 1989. This will result in a description of the dynamic network society we are living in today and a reflection on the role Curaçao could play in such a society. Then I will give some of my views on universities in general, followed by some suggestions for how the University of Curaçao can help to strengthen the position of the beautiful country of Curaçao within the super volatile world of today.
