Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I am a young IR researcher with experience in the fields of globalization, regional integration, Brazilian foreign policy and democracy promotion. Currently, I 'm working in a PhD project in which I plan to uncover the moral foundations of Brazilian foreign policy and analyze it's positions in relation to contemporary global ethical issues such as humanitarian intervention, extreme poverty, famine and climate change. So I expect to engage in productive talks and interchange in the Global Ethics Network. Furthermore, I teach IR theory and analysis for graduate students, as well as research methods.
