Event Description

As part of Carnegie Council's 2014 Centennial projects, Devin Stewart is interviewing dozens of thought leaders and engaging the Council's Global Ethics Fellows on the idea of a "global ethic." Stewart will introduce the concept of a global ethic and its implications for international affairs, touching on issues such as immigration, climate change, and culture--with a focus on the US and Asia. He also will reflect on recent research on the democratization of Myanmar. As Carnegie Council approaches its 100th anniversary in 2014, it is creating a global network of teachers and students. In partnership with the Henry Luce Foundation, Carnegie Council will facilitate collaborative projects between US and Asian professors and students at universities and colleges. Some participating students will have an opportunity to visit the Council's New York City headquarters. Stewart will invite students and teachers to get involved in this exciting new project.

Facing a Pandemic in the Dark

Over 1 million Rohingya refugees living in crowded, unsanitary conditions in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh could soon be facing their own COVID-19 outbreak. Making their situation even more desperate is an Internet blockade, meaning they don't have access to life-saving information, writes Rohingya activist and educator Razia Sultana. How can international organizations help?

Hungary and the Values Test

In the wake of the Hungarian parliament's vote to allow the executive to rule by decree, Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev reflects on the call by some to expel Hungary from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization--on the grounds that the country no longer upholds the liberal-democratic values that should form the basis of the security association.

The Coronavirus Pandemic & International Relations, with Nikolas Gvosdev

With the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting all aspects of daily life around the world, what will be the effect on international relations? Will it increase cooperation among nations, or will it lead to more conflict and competition? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev and host Alex Woodson discuss these scenarios and also touch on how the virus has affected the Democratic primary, in which Joe Biden now has a commanding lead.
