To Celebrate its 105th Anniversary on February 10, Carnegie Council Posts a Special Collection from its Archives

For its Centennial in 2014 Carnegie Council started work on the “100 for 100” project, an online selection of 100 of some of the best materials from its extensive archives, going back to 1914, now available just in time for the Council’s 105th anniversary.

"This is an adventure such as has never been tried before," announced Andrew Carnegie on February 10, 1914. He was addressing 29 of America's greatest religious leaders from 12 religious sects, an interfaith initiative that was a first for its time.

Carnegie had called them together to found his last philanthropic venture, the Church Peace Union, known today as Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs. Through the CPU, Carnegie hoped to mobilize the world's churches, religious organizations, and other spiritual and moral resources to join in promoting moral leadership and finding alternatives to armed conflict.

Over a century later, Carnegie Council continues to foster a global conversation on major ethical challenges in international politics. Broadcasting across multiple media channels, Carnegie Council offers lectures, interviews, articles, and programs—all available worldwide to anyone, anywhere.

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?
