Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I'm currently a congressional staffer working for a Member of Congress that is in the House Foreign Affairs Committee (HFAC); subcommittee on Middle East and North Africa (MENA), as well as Homeland Security Committee. My aspiration is to one day work for the National Security Council in the White House, or be Assistant Secretary of State in the European and Eurasian Affairs bureau.
I hope to gain from GEN the network needed to attain my goals. I also hope to provide my experience to those who may have similar goals. This would be a great forum to have discussions on foreign policy, ethics in international relations and discussions on careers in the fields related.

Next time on Global Ethics Forum, former Republican congressman Bob Inglis discusses how he went from climate change denier to activist and a conservative approach to environmentalism. In this excerpt, Inglis explains to journalist Stephanie Sy how climate change became politicized and deniers took root in the Republican Party.
Did you know that Tunisia started championing women's rights in the eighth century, and is still far ahead of most Arab and Muslim-majority countries? Indeed Tunisia's trajectory on many fronts has been radically more progressive than that of other Arab nations. So while it it may serve as an inspiration, its unique history probably makes its success impossible to duplicate, says Safwan Masri.
