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

The Jungle Grows Back: America and Our Imperiled World, with Robert Kagan

"The analogy that is at the heart of this book is about a jungle and a garden," says Robert Kagan. "In order to have a garden and sustain a garden, you've got to be constantly gardening. 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.

The Living Legacy of the First World War

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.

Myanmar and the Plight of the Rohingya, with Elliott Prasse-Freeman

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.
