Two Weeks to Go: The Fifth Global Ethics Day is on Wednesday October 17


A walkathon in Oman; film festivals in Hong Kong and Singapore; a day on bioethics in Bulgaria; and lectures, movie screenings, debates, and panels around the world: What do they all have in common? These are just some of the activities planned for Global Ethics Day on Wednesday October 17, 2018.

Launched by Carnegie Council in 2014, Global Ethics Day is an opportunity for institutions to hold events on or around this day to focus on ethics. Inspired by Earth Day, it’s a time to explore the crucial role of ethics--in international affairs, in every profession, and in everyday life.

Global Ethics Weekly: Human Rights on the Ground, with Sujata Gadkar-Wilcox

Quinnipiac's Sujata Gadkar-Wilcox discusses her work researching the conception of human rights in a community in rural India. She tells the story of Chaya Kakade, a woman who went on a hunger strike after the Indian government proposed a tax on sanitary napkins, and has since built her own production center in Latur. How does Kakade understand human rights? How can Westerners move beyond a legalistic view of the concept?

The Future is Asian, with Parag Khanna

"The rise of China is not the biggest story in the world," says Parag Khanna. "The Asianization of Asia, the return of Asia, the rise of the Asian system, is the biggest story in the world." This new Asian system, where business, technology, globalization, and geopolitics are intertwined, stretches from Japan to Saudi Arabia, from Australia to Russia, and Indonesia to Turkey, linking 5 billion people.

China's Cognitive Warfare, with Rachael Burton

How is China influencing democracies such as Taiwan, Korea, and the United States? "I think there are three areas that you can look at," says Asia security analyst Rachael Burton. "The first is narrative dominance, which I would call a form of cognitive warfare. Beijing has been able to set the terms of debate . . . and once you're asking the questions, then you're able to drive intellectuals or policymakers to a certain answer."
