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.

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

In the first in a series of podcasts on gene editing, Columbia's Dr. Robert Klitzman provides an overview of the technology, ethical and governance issues, and where it could all go in the near future. Plus he explains why the birth of genetically engineered twins in China last year was a "seismic" event. How could gene editing lead to more inequality? What could be some of unintended consequences?
