Introducing: The Photographer's Ethical Toolkit

Posted by Savannah Dodd on September 25, 2018 at 9:00am 0 Comments

The Photography Ethics Centre was founded less than one year ago with the intention of raising awareness about ethics across the photography industry and around the world.

Before the Photography Ethics Centre was founded, when it was just an idea, we knew that we were biting off more than we could chew. How could a small organisation possibly tackle such an enormous task? We knew that we would never be able to cover enough ground to make a dent in this global problem.

TOPIC: Is it important to live in democracy?

Have you ever thought about life without freedom?

Sometimes, freedom makes our life aimless. Some people, possibly, have ever thought that freedom will make their goal seems unclear. We also, probably, have ever thought that living in all-have-been-determined-world is much better because we already have a clear goals and predictable outcome.

Democracy – the Bank of Social Demons

The hidden truth is that democracy is like a poison with sugar coating. Before putting clarity to the context in which the words of the above title were used, I must categorically state my position on the subject matter. For me, democracy has done and is doing more harm to our societies than the superficial serenity we feel it offers, and living in a democratic society is tantamount to building castle on a…

Making Foreign Policy Relevant Again, with Asha Castleberry & Ali Wyne

Has a gap opened up between the U.S. national security community and the general public over foreign policy? If so, why? How can we close it? This panel with foreign policy experts Asha Castleberry and Ali Wyne is part of a larger effort by Carnegie Council's U.S. Global Engagement Program to examine drivers in U.S. politics pushing the United States to disengage from international affairs.

The Ethics of the "Doorstep"

The "doorstep test" requires policymakers to be able to articulate how, and to what degree, something happening in the world connects to the day-to-day experience, needs, and interests of the citizenry. This construct requires honesty and reminds us that domestic policy and foreign policy ought to be linked.

Malaysian & Indonesian Elections, with Meredith Weiss & Jeremy Menchik

This fascinating conversation begins with a discussion of the critical importance of Southeast Asia, including the rise of China and its ambitions in the region. Then Professor Weiss focuses on Malaysia and the return of the formidable 93-year old Mahathir as prime minister. Next, Professor Menchik discusses the complex situation in Indonesia--a country with 17,000 islands and 300-plus ethnic groups--and the upcoming elections there.
