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 Future of War: A History, with Lawrence Freedman

"Though most of the literature you will read on the future of war certainly talks about war as between regular armies, as proper fights, now with drones or with autonomous vehicles or robots or whatever, or even painless--cyber and so on--yet actually the reality of war is as it has always been: it is vicious, and it is nasty, and it kills the wrong people, and it does so in considerable numbers."
