Carnegie Council Announces Annual Free Issue of Its Journal 'Ethics & International Affairs'

NEW YORK, June 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Together with the publisher Wiley-Blackwell, the Carnegie Council announces the annual sample issue of its quarterly journal "Ethics & International Affairs."

Now is your chance to read the entire summer issue online, free of charge. Go to

Just published, the issue features a special section entitled Postwar Justice and the Responsibility to Rebuild, guest edited by Alexandra Gheciu and Jennifer Welsh. This collection of articles focuses on the ethical assumptions that underpin views of postwar reconstruction, in particular on the question of whether (and under what circumstances) outsiders can legitimately take over the reins of government. The contributors are Alexandra Gheciu and Jennifer Welsh; Mark Evans; Stefano Recchia; and Dominik Zaum.

Also in this issue: Mervyn Frost discusses ethical competence in international relations, and Amy Zalman and Jonathan Clarke argue that the "global war on terror" narrative needs a rewrite. In addition, every issue features book reviews and a "Briefly Noted" section, which cover notable recent books in the field of international relations.

"The journal occupies a unique and crucial niche in the way that it puts practical ethical questions at the centre of the burning issues in international relations, world affairs and international public policy," says Professor Robyn Eckersley, Head of Political Science, University of Melbourne. "It is also fantastic for teaching purposes."

"Ethics & International Affairs" is an interdisciplinary resource for scholars, students, and policy analysts concerned with the moral dimensions of global issues. It covers global justice, civil society, democratization, international law, intervention, sanctions, and related topics.

Over 200 universities across the world feature EIA articles in their syllabi, from Argentina to New Zealand.

The Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs (, established in 1914 by Andrew Carnegie, is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing understanding of the relationship between ethics and international affairs.
