Time for Global Ethics?

From nuclear tensions and climate change to refugees and the rise of populism, major world issues have ethical implications. Those subjects and others will be discussed during the ninth season of Global Ethics Forum, a half-hour discussion show that begins its ninth season this weekend.

Produced by the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, episodes premiere Friday nights at 8 pm ET over New York City’s CUNY TV, a cable channel that can also be seen  over the air on channel 25.3. Episodes then become available on YouTube and also run over the air on MHz Worldview (Saturdays at 3 pm, Sundays at 10:30 am). For a list of stations nationwide, visit MHz’s Where to Watch page.

The Global Ethics Forum YouTube page also hosts 138 episodes from the series’ first eight seasons.

This weekend’s episode, “The Nuclear Necessity Principle,” features Scott Sagan, Stanford University Professor of Political Science, in conversation with series host Randall Pinkston:

Upcoming episodes and guests include: “The Ethics and Politics of the Refugee Crisis” (author/journalist James Traub); “The Populist Explosion” (author/journalist John B. Judis); “The Soul of the First Amendment” (author/attorney Floyd Abrams); “Sea Power: The History and Geopolitics of the World’s Oceans” (US Navy Admiral James Stavridis, Ret.); and “Hope for a Sustainable Future” (Steven Cohen of the Earth Institute).

The non-profit Carnegie Council was founded by Andrew Carnegie in 1914. For more info, visit carnegiecouncil.org.
