Carnegie Council Timeline: The First Hundred Years

Oct 10, 2014

What institutions will speak for ethics 100 years from now? It is our intention that the Carnegie Council will still be a global forum for voices promoting ethics in international affairs. In the face of so many challenges, the Council continues to be a place where we can keep imagining a better future.

---Joel H. Rosenthal, Carnegie Council President

In honor of its Centennial, Carnegie Council presents an online history timeline, based on the book Toward Peace with Justice: One Hundred Years of the Carnegie Council by Kate Hallgren. Like the book, this lavishly illustrated account offers a fresh perspective on the Council’s first 100 years, placing its story in the context of 20th century American and world history.

From its inception on the eve of World War I, the Council has always been in the thick of the heated debates around the peace movement, disarmament, international intervention, the role of religion in politics, inequality, and human rights, both in the United States and around the world.

The book and timeline clarify the difficult choices surrounding the Council and its leaders' commitment to ethical behavior in the midst of conflict, from 1914 to the present day.

From 1914-2014 and 100 years from now: ETHICS MATTER.
