Israel-Gaza Conflict: Here We Are Again

To begin, I want to make my view clear that the attacks by both Israel and Hamas must be strongly condemned. Both sides have been displaying utter disregard for the right to life and a clear lack of interest in holding those responsible (including senior political and military leaders) accountable for grave human rights violations and violations of international law.

Empowerment and Moral Leadership - Sara M Badran -Medical undergrad.

        Everyday I lived my life guided by principles, shielded from the outside world,quite   content  to look at it as if from a snowball .

What was right was right ,and what was wrong was wrong was wrong.…

The Individual & the Collective, Politics, & the UN, with Jean-Marie Guéhenno

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. What is the role of the UN in this environment? How can we avoid the violent upheavals that marked other transitional phases in humanity?

A Russian Take on the Kurds and U.S. Foreign Policy

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.

The Struggle for Recognition in International Relations, with Michelle Murray

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?
