celebrating diversity in a historically homogeneous community: feedback please!

Brainstorming with friends tonight, we wondered how we can bring together our diverse neighbors in a welcoming way. The demographics in this historically homogeneous community are shifting, and we are glad for that, but are concerned they might feel isolated.We have some ideas for a community event, but I am interested in hearing your thoughts and ideas as well. See More

Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'.

.....the president of my country made an abhorrent statement the other day. please accept my apologies, on behalf of my friends and family. his words and deeds are NOT a reflection of anyone i know. our hearts are broken over his shameful comments.

China's "Opinion Deterrence" with Isaac Stone Fish

"I think it's important to contrast what China is doing with what Russia is doing," says Asia Society's Isaac Stone Fish. "Russia influence operations and Russia influence is much more about sowing chaos, it's about destabilization, it's about making America weaker. China is much more about making China stronger. The United States is a vector and a way for China to become stronger." Elon Musk, Alibaba, and China's internal power structures are also discussed in this wide-ranging talk.

American vs. Chinese Propaganda, with Robert Daly

As China's middle class grows, Hollywood is making films with this audience in mind, says the Wilson Center's Robert Daly, previously a producer for the Chinese version of "Sesame Street." How is this different from filmmaking in the World War II and Cold War eras? And why did the Chinese government have a problem with Cookie Monster and Grover?

Global Ethics Weekly: A "Peace Regime" on the Korean Peninsula?

In this new podcast series, we'll be connecting current events to Carnegie Council resources through conversations with our Senior Fellows. This week, Devin Stewart discusses how his essay defending the Singapore Summit holds up a month later. Plus, he and host Alex Woodson speak about Mike Pompeo's strange and unproductive trip to Pyongyang, what a "peace regime" could look like, and the prospects for a unified Korean Peninsula.
