* Year 13 (final year of high school)

Why do we have democracy? We have it because we believe it’s fair. We have it because we believe it can make us prosperous. We have it because we believe it guarantees peace.

Is it important to live in a democracy?

Mesropyan Emma, student of Stavropol State Agrarian University 

Currently the most optimal political regime is democracy; democracy means the power of the people. Obviously, any liberal, defender of humans, humanist, everyone who considers himself a modern progressive person believes that it is good; the most important public problems should be solved by popular vote. If any country, for example, China, which has a developing industry and an expanding domestic market, does not…

Is it important to live in a democracy?

In the last election in Ghana, I stayed up all night glued to the television as ballot papers were counted and compiled. The excitement that heralded the announcement of the election result was palpable in my town and in every corner groups of people huddled together to discuss the possible outcome.

The Ethics of Gene Editing & Human Enhancement, with Julian Savulescu

What does "good ethics" means when it comes to gene editing? What types of conversations should we be having about this technology? Julian Savulescu, director of the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, shares his thoughts on these topics and more, including moral and human enhancement, and why he called Dr. He Jiankui's experiment "monstrous."

Vox Populi, Eurasia Group Foundation, and Narratives

The Eurasia Group Foundation (EGF) has released its report on public attitudes towards U.S. foreign policy. Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev notes that, like the project on U.S. Global Engagement at the Carnegie Council, EGF is attempting to get at the twin issues of "the chasm which exists between the interests and concerns of foreign policy elites and those of ordinary citizens" and "the reasons why Americans are increasingly disenfranchised from foreign policy decisions being made in Washington."
