Join Carnegie Council & Organizations around the World: Celebrate Global Ethics Day, October 17, 2018

In today's interconnected world, ethics matter more than ever. That's why we need our leaders, businesses, schools, and most importantly each of us to make the most ethical decisions possible. How can we do that? By examining the meaning of ethics and by taking action!

Launched by Carnegie Council in 2014, Global Ethics Day is an opportunity for institutions to hold events on or around this day to explore the essential role of ethics, globally and in every field.

How can you get involved and spread the word?

Organize an activity such as a lecture, panel, debate, film screening, or environmental clean-up. Popular topics include ethics in business, protecting the environment, ethics in the classroom, personal values, democracy, and human rights.

Trump is the Symptom, Not the Problem

Astute observers of U.S. foreign policy have been making the case, as we move into the 2020 elections, not to see the interruptions in the flow of U.S. foreign policy solely as a result of the personality and foibles of the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. Ian Bremmer and Colin Dueck expand on this thought.

Gene Editing: Overview, Ethics, & the Near Future, with Robert Klitzman
