Apr 23, 2008

Carnegie Ethics StudioThe newest member of the Carnegie Council is William C. Vock Jr. As Senior Fellow and Senior Program Director, he is responsible for developing new partnerships and educational materials for the Carnegie Ethics Studio project. The vision of the Ethics Studio is "a global, interactive network sharing content and discourse" on international policy issues. We invite universities, secondary schools, and public education programs around the world to join in shaping the parameters underlying our expectations about international policy.

The Ethics Studio partners, located at affiliated educational institutions around the world, will operate under licensed partnerships with the Carnegie Council. The local institutions will fund, establish, and maintain facilities known as Carnegie Ethics Centers. These franchise agreements will allow teachers and students access to an international community of scholars, experts, journalists, and the vital work they do on behalf of the Carnegie Council. The Carnegie Ethics Studio will offer its partners the opportunity to gather, work, and study in a room outfitted with the following resources:

  • Audio, video, and print materials from the Carnegie Council archives
  • High-speed internet connections (as local conditions allow)
  • Access to the Ethics Studio web portal
  • Conferencing capabilities
  • The intellectual history of the Carnegie Council
