Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I am a young IR researcher with experience in the fields of globalization, regional integration, Brazilian foreign policy and democracy promotion. Currently, I 'm working in a PhD project in which I plan to uncover the moral foundations of Brazilian foreign policy and analyze it's positions in relation to contemporary global ethical issues such as humanitarian intervention, extreme poverty, famine and climate change. So I expect to engage in productive talks and interchange in the Global Ethics Network. Furthermore, I teach IR theory and analysis for graduate students, as well as research methods.

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.
