Event Description

Carnegie Council announces its fifth annual Global Ethics Day (#globalethicsday2018) on October 17, 2018.

Global Ethics Day is a global teach-in and an opportunity for institutions to explore the role of ethics in a globalized world.

Inspired by Earth Day and founded by Carnegie Council in 2014 as part of its Centennial activities, Global Ethics Day provides an opportunity for organizations around the world to hold events on or around this day, exploring the meaning of ethics in international affairs—and to share your #globalethicsday2018 activities widely on social media.

We encourage institutions everywhere to use Global Ethics Day to hold programs focusing on ethics, such as lectures, film screenings, debates, panel discussions, or activities to protect the environment. In the tradition of a "teach-in" model, these events will be run by each institution as it sees fit while being part of a worldwide Global Ethics Day.

To get more information, including downloadable posters and logos, and to let us know how you are participating, go to www.globalethicsday.org.

Enemy of the People: Trump's War on the Press, with Marvin Kalb

Trump has a love-hate relationship with the press, which he calls "the enemy of the people" when it crosses him, knowing nothing of the origins of the phrase, says Marvin Kalb. Yet the pillars of democracy are the sanctity of the court and the freedom of the press. "I think that President Trump—not wittingly, unwittingly—is moving this nation away from our common understanding of democracy toward something that edges toward authoritarianism."

A Savage Order, with Rachel Kleinfeld

Can violent societies get better? Rachel Kleinfeld discusses her latest book, "A Savage Order: How the World's Deadliest Countries Can Forge a Path to Security." Her conclusion is ultimately optimistic: Though it's never easy, real democracy (not autocracy in disguise) and a vibrant middle class can provide a path out of violence.

Education for Peace: The Living Legacy of the First World War

Four Fellows from Carnegie Council's "The Living Legacy of WWI" project present their research on different aspects of the war--counterterrorism, airpower, chemical warfare, and Latin America--and its long-term impacts. The panel was part of the Carnegie Peacebuilding Conversations, a three-day program at the Peace Palace in The Hague, Netherlands, presented in cooperation with Carnegie institutions worldwide and other partners.
