Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
Hi I'm a doctoral student in Politics and International Relations at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. My thesis reassesses China's non-intervention doctrine by investigating into historical and philosophical texts in classical China. My broader academic interest is China's role in the 21st century international and global ethics (same focus on New Zealand). I'm also paying attention to traces of cosmopolitanism and humanitarianism in China. I've been a long-time follower of the news and articles posted on the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs website. I'd love to learn more how people around the world think about ethical issues in IR and to have meaningful dialogues with them. I'd also like to do some networking too, if this is possible.

Indeed, these are the essential elements of humane, pluralist societies; and in an age of autocracy, our very lives may depend on their continued existence.

Global Ethics Weekly: The Mueller Report & U.S. Foreign Policy, with Jonathan Cristol

A lot of the talk about the Mueller Report has focused on its political and legal implications, but how will it affect U.S. foreign policy? Adelphi College's Jonathan Cristol discusses the reactions of allies and adversaries to Trump's passivity in the face of massive Russian interference in the U.S. election and congressional inaction and public apathy concerning presidential corruption. Plus, he details recent U.S. policy moves on Iran and the significance of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg's speech to U.S. Congress.
