Event Description

The Research School on Peace and Conflict is arranging a three day PhD course on the ethics of emerging military technologies, 13-15 November 2013. The course is free and the application deadline is 13 October.

New military technologies have traditionally been met with some skepticism from ethicists and lawyers. At the same time, new technology is often a driver of moral, legal and social change. This course explores the legal and ethical questions that arise with respect to emerging military technologies, and asks how these change the nature of war and the roles of combatants and civilians.

The course is coordinated by Gregory M. Reichsberg and lectures will be given by Nic Marsh, Greg Reichberg, Kristin B. Sandvik, Henrik Syse (PRIO); Heather Harrison Dinniss (Swedish National Defense College) and Simon O’Conner (Norwegian Red Cross).

The Power of Tribalism, with Amy Chua & Walter Russell Mead

"In our foreign policy, for at least half a century, we have been spectacularly blind to the power of tribal politics," says Amy Chua, author of "Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations." What does this mean in 2019? How can Americans move past tribalism? Don't miss this conversation with Chua and Bard College's Walter Russell Mead, moderated by Bard's Roger Berkowitz.

Climate Change, Intergenerational Ethics, & Political Responsibility, with Stephen Gardiner

University of Washington's Professor Stephen Gardiner discusses the ethics of climate change from intergenerational, political, and personal perspectives. Should individuals feel bad for using plastic straws or eating meat? What should the UN and its member states do? And how can older generations make up for "a massive failure in leadership" that has led, in part, to the current crisis?

C2G Update: Nature-based Solutions, the UN, & the IPCC Reports, with Janos Pasztor

Janos Pasztor, executive director of the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G), gives an update on his team's work after a busy week in New York. In the wake of troubling IPCC reports on climate change's effect on the oceans and land use, what more can the UN do? What are the challenges of nature-based solutions? And how should we handle climate change fatigue, individually and on a societal level?
