About

Using the power of ethics to build a better future

Our Mission

We empower ethics by identifying and addressing the most critical ethical issues of today and tomorrow.

Today, the world faces unprecedented upheaval as countries and individuals retreat from multilateralism, embrace nationalism, attack democratic norms, and grapple with the impact of emerging technologies on society.

Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs is an independent, research-driven nonprofit that works to empower ethics by identifying and addressing the most critical ethical issues of today and tomorrow.

Founded by Andrew Carnegie over a century ago, we set the global ethical agenda and work for an ethical future by convening conversations, producing materials in a range of media, and sharing resources for education, impact, and awareness.

We are the world’s catalyst for ethical action.

Our Work

We set the global ethical agenda and work for an ethical future by:

Identifying current and future critical ethical issues that affect politics and business, education and journalism, religion and science, and the armed forces;

Convening leading experts and thinkers to generate ethical solutions to global problems;

Creating communities and activating constituencies by embracing multilateralism and exploring shared values; and

Framing ethical perspectives by broadcasting, publishing, educating, and engaging with audiences around the world.
