About GLOBAL ETHICS NETWORK

We live in an increasingly connected world.

But conflicts persist and finding moral common ground requires communication and collaboration, both virtual and face-to-face.

Our founder Andrew Carnegie realized that education and moral dialogue were critical toward achieving a more peaceful planet. Carnegie Council's Global Ethics Network brings those founding principles together by engaging teachers, students, and publics around the world in a conversation on a global ethic.

With its global fellowship, student mentorships, and online social network, the Global Ethics Network sparks the creation of new educational resources, the joint exploration of global issues, and the formation of meaningful and lasting partnerships.

GLOBAL ETHICS FELLOWS

Carnegie Council's Global Ethics Network provides a platform for educational institutions around the world to create and share interactive multimedia resources that explore the ethical dimensions of international affairs.

The Global Ethics Fellows and their home institutions form the heart of the Network. They are developing multimedia production facilities that will allow Network partners to record original content created by students and educators. The Network combines existing Carnegie Council resources with their institutions to ignite new ideas and foster lively debate on such subjects as human rights, conflict resolution, and environmental sustainability.

The Network's educational resources include:

  • Live events featuring original Carnegie Council content;
  • Class exercises, lesson plans, and faculty development;
  • Joint lectures, symposiums, and conferences.

By using these resources, students and educators from across the Network conduct independent research and promote ethical inquiries within their communities. Students from the Middle East can record interviews with experts in New York City, while educators in Southeast Asia can collaborate on online curricula with colleagues in Oregon. Through such collaboration, the Network enables its partners to rethink their moral assumptions.

ETHICS FELLOWS FOR THE FUTURE

Ethics Fellows for the Future are student mentees of Carnegie Council Global Ethics Fellows. The purpose of the program is to build the next generation of thinking on ethical issues in international affairs and to facilitate cooperation and dialogue between students from different regions of the world. Mentors will help Fellows for the Future develop collaborative research projects, joint papers, and multimedia by coordinating virtual and in-person collaboration with other students and Fellows.

The duration of this unpaid, non-resident mentorship is one year. In order to qualify for this affiliation, you must be selected by a Global Ethics Fellow.

The Living Legacy of WWI: Jane Addams & Her Cosmopolitan Ethics, with Seiko Mimaki

"What distinguished Addams from other peace advocates was her strong emphasis on the crucial role of marginalized people, such as women, immigrants, and workers, in the peacemaking process," says Seiko Mimaki. Her views are highly relevant today, when people see themselves as abandoned by global elites. Unlike that of Woodrow Wilson, her vision of cosmopolitanism "pursued freedom and opportunity for everyone, not just for a privileged few."

What do Americans (Republican Voters) Actually Think?

We hear all sorts of assumptions as to what American voters—and now specifically Republican voters who may or may not serve as the basis for President Trump's support—think and believe about U.S. foreign policy. Do they have affection for Putin and Russia? Are they skeptical of free trade?

The People vs. Democracy: Why Our Freedom Is in Danger and How to Save It, with Yasch Mounk

Harvard's Yascha Mounk argues that liberalism and democracy are coming apart, creating new forms of illiberal democracy (democracy without rights) and undemocratic liberalism (rights without democracy). Populist leaders are flourishing; indeed, Hungary is on the verge of descending into dictatorship, with shamefully little criticism from the Europe or the U.S. What are the causes of this phenomenon? What can we do about it?
