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.
