What does moral leadership mean to me?


Moral leadership would definitely be some hot topics when people live under monarchy, especially under the reign of some absolute monarchy. Ideas would arise questioning the court and the roles played by the citizens. Today, moral leadership may sound less familiar to us, but the common understanding of moral leadership may be the leader of a democratic society. In my…

Media’s Critical Moral Leadership Role: Helping Set Sparks Ablaze


            With close to 100 journalists imprisoned, Turkey now has the highest number of incarcerated journalists in the world as it continues down a path of increasingly authoritarian media censorship. “Anyone who criticizes the [Turkish] government either stops or finds him or herself in jail,” lamented Faruk…

We can all be moral leaders

What does moral leadership mean to you?

Walter Lee

PhD Candidate, Politics and International Relations


Is moral leadership ever possible? Morality is something to be taken into action rather than be talked. In an era which globalisation has been accelerating and the call for leadership in global ethics has been increasing, I think it is useful to review a selection of role models in human…

As an imperative in any community, the significance of leadership cannot be downplayed. A congregation of two or more must spring forth a leader who would be responsible for piloting the affairs of the group and providing them with guidance and direction. Leadership therefore is inevitable in any society. That apart, leadership is critical to the progress or downfall of…

My Own Side

The world is formed by integrated and tiny units of people living together as family, community, village, society and so on. Each of these units is answerable to a leader. There are different types of leadership, but my focus is on Moral Leadership. This particular type can be found anywhere; whether it is the Business Sector, Political Sector, Educational Sector and /or other affairs of life.

Nevertheless, what is Moral Leadership? I shall define the two words before joining them together… Continue

What Does Moral Leadership Mean to Me? The Light of Man.

Man's journey from the birth of their time has been plagued with a great divide. The rift was fabricated from an intrinsic propensity to choose the path one deems apt. The others embark their own way fueled by alternate incentives. But mere tribal discrepancies among our great early species have atrophied to the extent of genocide in the recent past. Nazi Germany could not live harmoniously with the Jewish innocent and the military regime of Yugoslavia had to ethnically cleanse…

What Moral Leadership means to me?

I am a law student, in my last year and my own education is very important to me, because I appreciate how much more difficult the world out there, especially for people like me, the youth. I have been able to volunteer in several youth-led and NGO-led projects targeting students and all in some way, trying to empower them, to become better students.

Despite all of this, I still find the topic Moral leadership as quite complex. I understand the concept of leadership. Being surrounded…

The Timeless Universal Moral Leader

“You better watch out. You better not cry.  You better not pout; I’m telling you why.  Santa Claus is coming to town.”   

If someone began to sing this tune, most people would be able to join in and sing along.  This classic melody represents one of the most well-known Christmas icons in the world.  This classic melody represents the one and only Santa Claus, or Father Christmas, or even St. Nicholas.  The jolly man has numerous names, yet no matter what you prefer to call him, this…

The Moral Leader

Vatsal Vasudev

National Law University, Jodhpur, India.


Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King Jr. are a few unforgettable leaders the world saw. So are Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini and Stalin. There must be something in the way one handles leadership which distinguishes the former group from the latter. Why is it that some leaders become immortal sources of inspiration, while others are remembered only for the sake of keeping…

What does moral leadership mean to me?

A discussion on subjectivity


           The textbook definition of a moral leader is “ an individual who governs or makes decisions based on fairness and ethical guidelines, rather than personal, political, or financial considerations”. However I believe that the term ‘Moral Leadership’ is somewhat of an oxymoron. With the moral compass of our generation skewed…

What does moral leadership mean to you?

Drenched into the never ending debate on morality and ethics i asked myself do we really need heroes to inspire us or to make us believe in the goodness of a system. As a child one would have heroes playing their roles in the moral drama of the world who would make us trust each other. Today we live in a world full of hatred, enmity, selfishness, greed. We are in dire need of heroes, people who can inspire us, help shape us morally, spur us on to purposeful action—and from time to time we…

To be, or not to be, that is the question!

It’s a fine state of affairs in Syria, and the clock is striking thirteen. Authoritarianism stands intransigent to the whims and agitations of the people. And the frightening turnout of events in that country is by no means “funny ha ha”.

'To be or not to be, that is the question'.

Riot acts are read out aloud through nuzzles of dictatorial guns, yet the “peopled dissidence” wouldn't yield to any such unpeopled impetus, neither would they be dragooned to…

Essay on 'What does moral leadership mean to you?'

Not many people have the intrepidity to go against the grain and stand up for what is just and ethical. But those who have the character to defy worldly logic and live up to moral standards eventually act in conformity with humanitarian standards-an act which goes a long way in ensuring that humanity and integrity are here to stay.

Moral leadership is never born out of coercion but an innate will to not let the wrong usurp the rights of the fair and it is this will that has…

What Does Moral Leadership Mean to You?

The word moral to me is easily defined. Whenever I hear it immediately I think of an assessment of an individual’s behavior; and whether that behavior is to be considered right or wrong. Furthermore from my perspective the word moral also deals with an evaluation of someone’s nature. Thus words like good and bad are also invariably thought of in association with the concept of morality However, in my view this assessment of…

The Narrative IS Changing . . .

The narrative about America's role in the world is changing--and more evidence is accumulating that suggests that no matter how the 2020 presidential and Congressional elections turn out, there is no turning the clock back to a pre-2016 status quo.

The Crack-Up: The 1919 Race Riots & the Crucible of Chicago, with Adam Green

During the "Red Summer" of 1919 dozens of race riots flared up across the U.S., but the anti-African American violence in Chicago stood out because of scale and social and political significance. University of Chicago's Professor Adam Green details the causes, the tragic events, and the aftermath in this riveting discussion. How did the riot affect the city's development for decades to come? How does it tie into questions about democracy and the end of World War I?

Ethics & International Affairs Volume 33.3 (Fall 2019)

The highlight of the Fall 2019 issue of "Ethics & International Affairs" is a roundtable on "Economic Sanctions and Their Consequences." Other topics include human rights and conflict resolution, Afghan attitudes toward civilian wartime harm, the role of supererogation on the battlefield, and the ethics of not-so-civil resistance.
