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 ?
Generation Z makes up over 30 percent of the world's population and this group of people, most under the age of 20, are already having an extraordinary effect on society, culture, and politics. Tatiana Serafin, journalism professor at Marymount Manhattan College, breaks down the power of this generation, focusing on climate change activism. How can they turn their energy into concrete action?
"In our foreign policy, for at least half a century, we have been spectacularly blind to the power of tribal politics," says Amy Chua, author of "Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations." What does this mean in 2019? How can Americans move past tribalism? Don't miss this conversation with Chua and Bard College's Walter Russell Mead, moderated by Bard's Roger Berkowitz.
University of Washington's Professor Stephen Gardiner discusses the ethics of climate change from intergenerational, political, and personal perspectives. Should individuals feel bad for using plastic straws or eating meat? What should the UN and its member states do? And how can older generations make up for "a massive failure in leadership" that has led, in part, to the current crisis?
