Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I am an Australian based, Scottish born, university student. I am studying a Bachelor of Laws with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in International Law and Global Governance with a minor in Criminology. I have some experience with human rights, criminal and corporate legal organisations. I am seeking to learn as much as I can from a diverse network of people with a shared interest in international relations/law. I also hope to contribute and share whatever knowledge and insight I can provide.

The term "fake news" is a little too tame, says Ann Ravel of the MapLight Digital Deception Project. Actually, this is foreign and domestic political propaganda aimed at undermining U.S. institutions and democracy. Maplight also tracks the enormous, pervasive problem of "dark money"--contributions by undisclosed donors to influence U.S. campaigns. Yet Ravel is optimistic that once Americans understand what's happening, it can be stopped.
From the unprecedented Trump-Kim meeting, to what some call a treasonous press conference in Finland, to growing tensions between America and its closest allies, as well as its adversaries, this has been a historic summer for international affairs. RAND Corporation's Ali Wyne unpacks these developments and looks at a potentially busy September for North Korea and the continuing schism between Trump and his top foreign policy advisers.
Is Trump's presidency a brief aberration after which things will return to normal? That's unlikely, argues Nikolas Gvosdev. In addition to disruptions that have already caused major changes in the international system, ongoing technological, demographic, economic, and military trends are also changing how U.S. foreign policy is understood.
