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 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.

The Sicilian Expedition and the Dilemma of Interventionism

The Peloponnesian War has lessons for U.S. foreign policy beyond the Thucydides Trap. Johanna Hanink reminds us that the debate over moral exceptionalism and interventionism is nothing new.

Democracy: The Keystone of our Society

South Korea has flourished as a democracy, while the North is suffering under authoritarianism. "By offering uncensored education, freedom of speech, and the unbridled agency to act, democracy empowers its people to develop abilities to conjure and execute revolutionary solutions to these shortcomings. As a result, democracy is adaptable, progressive, and resilient," writes You Young Kim.
