Academics Standing Against Poverty: New Special Issue of "Ethics & International Affairs"

I'm excited to announce that Ethics & International Affairs has just published its summer 2012 issue, which is guest edited by Thomas Pogge and Luis Cabrera, and features a truly excellent series of articles on "Academics Standing Against Poverty." The articles grew out of a conference sponsored by a new organization of the same name—ASAP for short. You can find out more about ASAP by clicking here.

The issue, which features contributions from Pogge and Cabrera, Simon Caney, Onora O'Neill, Martin Kirk, Roger Riddell, and Keith Horton, is accessible for free for a very limited time on the journal's homepage at our publisher, Cambridge University Press.

We hope these articles will stimulate discussion and debate about the roles and responsibilities of academics in helping alleviate global poverty and suffering. For those GEN members who are academics or part of the academic community, we strongly encourage you to share these pieces with your colleagues, and spread the word about ASAP.

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?
