Carnegie Council Launches Global Ethics Corner

New York, New York--The Carnegie Council is pleased to announce Global Ethics Corner, a weekly series of 90-second segments devoted to newsworthy ethical issues. Launched and produced by Senior Fellow and Program Director William C. Vocke, these pieces are multi-media, available as videos, audios, podcasts, and transcripts.

"The purpose of these short segments is not to provide answers," says Vocke, "but to ask the audience to explore the underlying ethical problems behind the headlines and to come to their own conclusions. The topics are eclectic-recent examples include robots on the battlefield, the financial crisis, and the debate over "slow food" versus fast food. We encourage audience responses. Global Ethics Corners are also available as features for newspapers and radio stations, on request."

Global Ethics Corner has its own YouTube channel, so that people can post text and video comments:

He has been professor and Director of the Institute of World Affairs at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and recently resigned his position as a Professor at Taiwan's top international affairs program at National Cheng Chi University. He also taught at National Taiwan University and at the Foreign Service Institute of the Taiwan Foreign Ministry; consulted at their Ministry of Justice, International Investigations Bureau; and spoke regularly at academic and corporate events. He has produced and hosted over 500 television and radio programs on public channels in Wisconsin and Cincinnati.
