Profile Information

Job Title
Graduate Student
Georgetown University
What are your interests and areas of expertise in international relations?
Democracy, Peace, Reconciliation, Religion, Security, War
Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I am a graduate student at Georgetown University, currently pursuing a master's degree in Conflict Resolution. I have worked with NGOs on issues of peacebuilding and human rights in Liberia, Nigeria and Tanzania. My main interest lies in the role of religion and religious groups in conflicts as well as in peacebuilding. In which instances do religious groups promote the use of force? How can radical religious groups be included in democratic processes in order to deradicalize them? How can religion be used to strengthen social cohesion and enable reconciliation in conflict and post-conflict settings?

Through the Global Ethics Network I hope to be able to exchange thoughts, experiences and research outcomes with students, scholars and practitioners who are interested in these or similar issues. I am also interested in learning more about how best to combine research and practice in a career in order to generate knowledge that is of direct relevance to politics and peacebuilding practice.

What think you of cyberpeacefare initiative (see my blog) ? Any idea(s) on how to get cyberdenizens realizing each and every one of us has the instant opportunity/power to make our collective voices resound in cyberspace for world peace and understanding. For example RTing

"Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me."&U/Us/All"

If (according to chaos theory) a butterfly fluttering its wings can cause a tsunami, shouldn't a simple simple appeal cause a ripple ?

A Parting of Values: America First versus Transactionalism

"The existing divide in American foreign policy discourse has been the extent to which the U.S. must actively propagate and spread its values, or defend them or promote them even when there is no interest at stake," writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. How does American civil society demand consideration of moral and ethical concerns in the decisions both to go to war and how the war will be prosecuted?

Suleimani Is Dead, but Diplomacy Shouldn’t Be

Carnegie Council fellow and Pacific Delegate Philip Caruso advocates for the value of diplomacy in the aftermath of the U.S. killing Iran's general Qassem Suleimani. "Iran cannot win a war against the United States, nor can the United States afford to fight one," he argues.
