Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
We are the 2017 Taipei American School iGEM Team. iGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machines) is an international genetic engineering competition that is open to both undergraduate and high school students interested in the field of synthetic biology. Our project is focused on cleaning up nanoparticle waste in wastewater treatment systems, and as a part of our Human Practice component for the tournament, we aim to explore key topics in bioethics. Specifically, we are interested in existing international chemical substance regulations, ethics concerns consumers may have, and how governments and industries can collaborate in implementing new technologies (such as nanoparticles). Through this forum, we hope to receive a diversity of opinions and perspectives on this issue to provide us with further insight. Our goal is to produce a policy paper that aims to regulate nanoparticle usage, address the disparity between emerging technologies and international law, and address bioethics concerns related to not only our prototype but to nanoparticles in general as well.

Have a nice day.

American Engagement: When It Comes to Foreign Policy, Does America Deserve Trump?

As the 2018 State of the Union address illustrated and to the great dismay of the "elites," President Trump is truly taking an "America First" approach to foreign policy. In this speech, he framed immigration, conflict with North Korea, and the fight against ISIS in terms of how they have affected invidiual Americans. But, with many citizens uninterested in the intricacies of foreign policy, could this be an effective strategy?

Articles Resulting from Carnegie Council Religion and Tolerance Research Delegation to Indonesia, October 2017

In October 2017, Carnegie Council's Asia Dialogues program led a group of 12 Pacific Delegates from seven countries and a diverse set of professional backgrounds to Indonesia. Amid growing Islamophobia and populism in Europe and the United States, a more complete picture of Islam is crucial, and as the world's largest Muslim nation, Indonesia has the potential to shape the way the world's fastest growing and most contentious religion is perceived worldwide.

To Fight Against This Age: On Fascism and Humanism, with Rob Riemen

No more euphemisms and denials, says Rob Riemen in this frightening and inspiring talk. Call it by its name: fascism. Neither technology, nor economic growth, nor political activism can fix this, he continues. We must create a new counterculture that replaces kitsch and conformism with truth, empathy, beauty, and justice.
