NEW YORK, May 20, 2005 -- On June 14-15, 2005, the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs in New York City will host a series of presentations by its 2004-2005 fellows on the findings of their year-long research projects.

The program for Tuesday June 14 features:

  • Leif Wenar on "Accountability in Development Aid” (10:45-12:15 A.M.)

In addition, on June 14 from 5:30-7:00 P.M., the fellows will attend a Merrill House Program with democracy expert Larry Diamond talking about his new book, Squandered Victory: The American Occupation and the Bungled Effort to Bring Democracy to Iraq. (NOTE: Anyone interested in attending the Larry Diamond event should contact Joanne Myers at [email protected].)

Begun in 2000, the Carnegie Council's Fellows Program was designed to complement the work of the Carnegie Council and to support its goal of nurturing the next generation of researchers on ethics and international affairs.
