Ethics & International Affairs, the journal of the Carnegie Council, seeks a volunteer intern for the spring 2019 semester. The goal of the journal is to integrate rigorous thinking about principles of ethics and justice into discussions of the practical policy dilemmas that frequently arise in global politics. Some of the journal’s most common topics include the ethics of war, the responsibility to protect, immigration and refugee issues, climate change, human rights, and sustainable development.
The internship is an excellent opportunity to receive training and develop broadly applicable skills for a future career in foreign policy, academia, or the publishing industry.

- Facilitating the peer-review process
- Record-keeping and administrative tasks
