Carnegie Council Launches globalethicsday.org for Fifth Global Ethics Day, October 17

To celebrate the fifth Global Ethics Day on October 17, 2018, Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs has launched a new website especially for this annual event: globalethicsday.org.

Global Ethics Day is a global teach-in and an opportunity for institutions to explore the role of ethics in a globalized world.

We encourage institutions everywhere to use this day to hold programs focusing on ethics, such as lectures, film screenings, debates, panel discussions, or activities to protect the environment. In the tradition of a "teach-in" model, these events will be run by each institution as it sees fit while being part of a worldwide Global Ethics Day.

Go to the new website's resources page to get ideas, links to background materials, and to download Global Ethics Day posters and logos.

For inspiration, have a look at Global Ethics Day photos and blog posts from 2017 and 2016.

Join us. Together, let's work to make ethics matter.

Contact us via the website and let us know how you plan to participate!

The Future of Artificial Intelligence, with Stuart J. Russell

UC Berkley's Professor Stuart J. Russell discusses the near- and far-future of artificial intelligence, including self-driving cars, killer robots, governance, and why he's worried that AI might destroy the world. How can scientists reconfigure AI systems so that humans will always be in control? How can we govern this emerging technology across borders? What can be done if autonomous weapons are deployed in 2020?

Killer Robots, Ethics, & Governance, with Peter Asaro

Peter Asaro, co-founder of the International Committee for Robot Arms Control, has a simple solution for stopping the future proliferation of killer robots, or lethal autonomous weapons: "Ban them." What are the ethical and logistical risks of this technology? How would it change the nature of warfare? And with the U.S. and other nations currently developing killer robots, what is the state of governance?

As Biden Stalls, Is the "Restorationist" Narrative Losing Ground?

U.S. Global Engagement Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev notes that former Vice President Joe Biden is, in foreign policy terms, most associated with a "restorationist" approach. How does this differentiate from other candidates? What approach will resonate most with voters?
