Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I am currently a legal intern for International Crisis Group in NYC and will be applying to law school. I see the global ethics network as a forum for global interaction and am ecstatic to be part of such a thing. I am interested in: classical philosophy, experimental economics, game theory, development theory, IR, and extractive industries; specifically, EITI.
