17-18 May, 2018 Chişinău, Moldova
Hosted by:
 Universitatea de Stat din Moldova (The State University of Moldova)

 The Universitatae de Stat din Moldova and the International Development Ethics Association (IDEA) invite you to submit an abstract for a presentation at an international, interdisciplinary conference for scholars, development practitioners, government policy makers, and representatives from local and regional marginalized groups.

The conference will explore the ethical dimensions of international, national, and community development by and for marginalized populations, with an emphasis on human rights and democratic participation. The concept of marginalization recognizes the myriad ways in which individuals and groups might be economically, socially, or politically excluded, and the developmental, democratic, health, and ethical consequences of that exclusion. Presentations will address the challenges to marginalized populations and ethno-cultural minorities, as well as other economically or geographically isolated groups, in the region and in Moldova especially, but also beyond, where there are valuable insights and lessons to be learned.

An open call for papers expires 15 March, 2018

Global Ethics Weekly: A "Peace Regime" on the Korean Peninsula?

In this new podcast series, we'll be connecting current events to Carnegie Council resources through conversations with our Senior Fellows. This week, Devin Stewart discusses how his essay defending the Singapore Summit holds up a month later. Plus, he and host Alex Woodson speak about Mike Pompeo's strange and unproductive trip to Pyongyang, what a "peace regime" could look like, and the prospects for a unified Korean Peninsula.

Asia's "Opinion Wars" with Historian Alexis Dudden

As part of our new Information Warfare podcast series, University of Connecticut historian Alexis Dudden looks at the propaganda efforts coming out of Northeast Asia, with a focus on China's Confucius Institutes at American universities. Is China trying to spread its communist ideology through these centers or just teach its language to college students? Are the U.S. and Japan "guilty" of similar efforts?

Politics and Cartography: The Power of Deception through Distortion

"Cartography is a powerful instrument of national policy, one that governments can use to influence peoples' beliefs and affect international affairs. With the simple stroke of a pen—or click of a mouse—the entire meaning of a map can change. These political distortions are far more worrisome than unavoidable geographic distortions, in that cartographers have introduced deception into the process for political purposes."
