FEBRUARY 19 & 20-
In collaboration with the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, the Tanner Human Rights Center will examine new challenges to peace in the early 21st century—challenges that would not have been clearly envisioned 100 years ago when Carnegie's philanthropies were established. Three such challenges that we propose to explore are environmental degradation and its impact on international relations, violence by non-state actors, and global economic inequality. Our purpose is not just to document these challenges but to examine how new forms of global ethical dialogue and interaction can lead us to effective non-violent responses to these challenges.
