About the Group

This group was established in 2012 so that our crew of Guest Editors can stay up to date on Network activities and discuss technical details in private. We are not accepting any new Guest Editors at present.

Briefly, here are the duties we hope to have covered:

1. Add blog posts to the Network: Original writing is best, but we also welcome cross-posting from relevant sources.

2. Add video to the Network: Relevant clips from sources such as YouTube can be easily added to the discussion.

3. Foster discussion: You are welcome to add discussion topics to the Forum, and we encourage you to comment on blogs, videos, and discussions posted by other members.

4. Enlist new members: Networks are based on strength in numbers, so extending targeted invitations to people with an interest in international relations is certainly welcome.

5. Moderate content: Most submissions need to be approved, and the faster the better. With a global network of Guest Editors we should be able to cover this responsibility 24/7. Occasionally a spammer sneaks in and needs to be flagged and booted.

6. Spread the word: You are welcome to connect your social media accounts to your profile here and to generally spread word about what we're doing. The network twitter account is @carnegieGEN, and the Carnegie Council Facebook page is here.

Thank you for offering your time to help build this network into something special. If you have questions, please post them in the discussion forum here, or write directly to Jenna Zhang. —Carnegie Council

Slowing the Proliferation of Major Conventional Weapons with Jonathan D. Caverley

The news is full of discussions on how to prevent further nuclear proliferation. But you can't understand a conflict like Syria without talking about major conventional weapons, such as artillery, missile defense, and aircraft, says military strategist Jonathan Caverley. Since the U.S. is by far the world's largest producer of such weapons, Caverley proposes that it creates a cartel, similar to OPEC, to slow down sales.

Global Ethics Forum Preview: Russian Media from Soviet Times to Putin, with Jonathan Sanders

Next time on Global Ethics Forum, Stony Brook professor Jonathan Sanders discusses the media and propaganda in Russia, from Soviet times to Putin. In this excerpt, Sanders, former CBS News Moscow correspondent, describes to journalist Randall Pinkston the surprising state of Russian media in 2017.

Fractured Continent: Europe's Crises and the Fate of the West, with William Drozdiak

In some ways Europe is more fragmented than at any time in the last three decades, says Drozdiak. There's a north/south split between wealthy creditor nations and deeply indebted ones; an east/west divide, as Poland and Hungary revert to nationalism; pressures of regional separatism; Brexit; and the migrant crisis. Then there's Trump, who sees Europe as a burden and economic rival. 2018 could be a pivotal year. What will happen?
