Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I am the Gifted Education Coordinator at Upper St. Clair High School near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Prior to my many years in Gifted, I taught International Baccalaureate French, Social Studies, and Astronomy. As one of the NASA Teacher-in-Space finalists, I have been very involved with space education over the years and have a particular interest in international relations related to space exploration. I have also been involved in coaching and evaluating International Future Problem Solving throughout my teaching career. Many of the topics we deal with in Future Problem Solving (climate change, world hunger, pandemic) require consideration of ethics at the international level. I am excited to learn more about the resources and ideas/insights available through the Global Ethics Network.

For me at least, that is a good analogy for this liberal world order, which itself is an unnatural creation which natural forces are always working to undermine." Human nature has not fundamentally changed, and this peaceful period is an aberration.
Five Fellows from "The Living Legacy of the First World War" project present their work. Their talks cover the history of war-induced psychological trauma and how it has been dealt with in the U.S. military; the impact of the defense industry's profit motive on U.S. foreign policy; haunting photos of severely facially disfigured soldiers; the legacy of press censorship during WWI; and the humanitarianism of Jane Addams.
The Rohingya are seen as fundamentally 'other,' says Prasse-Freeman. "Hence, even if they have formal citizenship, they wouldn't really be accepted as citizens, as full members of the polity." Could Aung San Suu Kyi have done more to prevent the persecution? How important was the hate speech on Facebook? How can the situation be resolved? Don't miss this informative and troubling conversation.
