Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I am a PhD student in Global Affairs, and my area of primary research concerns colonial genocides in Indigenous North America. I also have a secondary research interest in global environmental problems. Generally speaking, I am very concerned about the fate of planetary life in the 21st century, and I am convinced that we all need to raise awareness of global values and norms, while also remaining sensitive to local interests, needs, and particularities. In order to promote ethical actions in the communities to which I belong, it is important for me foster dialogue with like-minded colleagues from around the world.

Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Jean-Marie Guéhenno, former head of United Nations peacekeeping operations, discusses the tensions between the individual and the collective in a world filled with political tension, pervasive surveillance, and fear of risk.

A Russian defense news site declared the United States an "unreliable ally" after the the withdrawal of American troops from Northern Syria. Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev connects this characterization to the need for leaders to connect a specific policy action to a larger, understandable narrative for the American public.
How can established powers manage the peaceful rise of new great powers? Bard's Michelle Murray offers a new answer to this perennial question, arguing that power transitions are principally social phenomena whereby rising powers struggle to obtain recognition as world powers. How can this framework help us to understand the economic and military rivalry between United States and China?
