Ethics & International Affairs Journal

The quarterly journal of Carnegie Council

The aim of Ethics & International Affairs, the quarterly journal of Carnegie Council, is to help close the gap between theory and practice (and between theorists and practitioners) by publishing original articles, essays, and book reviews that integrate rigorous thinking about principles of justice and morality into discussions of practical dilemmas related to current policy developments, global institutional arrangements, and the conduct of important international actors.

Theoretical discussions that originate in philosophy, religion, or the social sciences should connect with such interests and concerns as the function and design of international organizations (for example, the United Nations, World Bank, and International Monetary Fund); institutions of accountability (such as the International Criminal Court and ad hoc tribunals); arrangements governing trade and the global economy; as well as issues of human rights, the environment, and the use of force.

Ethics & International Affairs has its own website.
