Media Organization: Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs

Company Description

THE MISSION of Carnegie Council is to enlarge the audience for the simple but powerful message that ethics matter, regardless of place, origin, or belief.

Since our founding by Andrew Carnegie a century ago, we have been one of the world's top creators of nonpartisan educational resources on international ethics used by professionals, journalists, educators, students, and the greater public. Carnegie Council is a non-profit 501(c) (3) institution.

Carnegie Council is a forum for the world's leading thinkers, experts and decision makers. Each year, we convene more than 50 public events. Through lectures, workshops, panel discussions, conferences, interviews, articles, and a wealth of free multimedia online resources, the Council has earned a reputation as an honest, objective voice for ethics in international affairs.

Articles from Ethics & International Affairs, our peer-reviewed journal, are used in hundreds of classrooms in dozens of countries around the world. Carnegie Council's resources are featured in the international textbook World Politics: Trends & Transformation, used by over 200 colleges in 20 countries. Our website is part of the U.S. Library of Congress collection of Public Policy Internet Materials. Our Global Ethics Network connects educators and students from 113 countries, and includes our Global Ethics Fellows representing universities across five continents. Our weekly TV series, Global Ethics Forum, airs on several public television stations and on YouTube.

Carnegie Council's multimedia resources are available to everyone, at anytime, anywhere in the world. Carnegie Ethics Studio records the Council's lectures and interviews and produces original content focusing on the ethical issues that challenge international leaders and global citizens. We offer our materials free of charge to the public via our online, TV, and radio outlets, and have a prominent presence on iTunes, iTunes-U, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites.
