Carnegie Council Receives Carnegie Corporation Grant

Apr 8, 2008

The Carnegie Council is pleased to announce that it has received a grant from the Carnegie Corporation to feature the Corporation's Carnegie Scholars in the Council's Public Affairs Program. Public Affairs ProgramChaired by Director Joanne Myers, the Carnegie Council's Public Affairs Program organizes about fifty events a year. Speakers are prominent people in the world of international affairs, from acclaimed authors, to Nobel laureates, to high-ranking UN officials. Their remarks are followed by a lively and well-informed question-and-answer session. Since 1999, the Carnegie Corporation Scholars Program has been supporting individual scholars to conduct research that extends the boundaries of its grantmaking priorities. Since 2005, the program has supported scholars whose work seeks to promote American understanding of Islam as a religion, the characteristics of Muslim societies, in general, and those of American Muslim communities, in particular. The Carnegie Council's Public Affairs Program will host and interview Carnegie Scholars in a series of special events, which will amplify the findings of recent scholarship in Islamic studies. This series will explore the fullness of diversity in Islamic theology, education, family life, politics, and encounters with the West. The scholars' work will be featured online in a variety of formats, such as video, audio, and transcripts."The role of religion in international affairs is one of the Council's three key themes, and we are delighted to be working with the Carnegie Corporation on this worthwhile project," says Carnegie Council president Joel Rosenthal. "The 'Carnegie Scholars' program will enhance the Council's mission to identify and promote new ideas and new voices. It supports our efforts to bring scholarship to public audiences worldwide." 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. The Carnegie Council's mission is to be the voice for ethics in international policy. It convenes agenda-setting forums and creates educational opportunities and information resources for a worldwide audience of teachers and students, journalists, international affairs professionals, and concerned citizens.
