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

Roadmap to Hell: Sex, Drugs and Guns on the Mafia Coast, with Barbie Latza Nadeau

Rome-based journalist Barbie Latza Nadeau tells the horrifying story of the thousands of Nigerian women and girls duped into being trafficked to Italy, where they are forced to become sex slaves, drug mules, or weapons smugglers. How can this be stopped? The Nigerian government turns a blind eye, Libya, the transit point, is a failed state, and Italy is overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of migrants--plus prostitution is legal there.

The Rohingya Crisis in Bangladesh, with BRAC's Muhammad Musa

Muhammad Musa is executive director of BRAC, which is working with the one million Rohingya refugees living in camps in Bangladesh. He describes the problems there, including growing tensions with the host community and the threat of the coming monsoon season, which may bring floods and landslides. He looks forward to the day when the Rohingya can go home to Myanmar, but this can only occur with the help of the international community.

Democracy Promotion in the Age of Trump

In this panel Adrian Basora makes a strong case for democracy as not only promoting American values but also serving U.S. interests, while Maia Otarashvili gives a frightening overview of the rise of "illiberal values" (Viktor Orbán's phrase) in the Eurasia region. Basora and Otarashvili are co-editors of "Does Democracy Matter? The United States and Global Democracy Support" and Nikolas Gvosdev is one of the contributors.
