Winners of Carnegie Council's International Student Essay Contest 2019 - Internet Responsibility
January 31, 2020
Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs is pleased to announce the winners of its 2019 International Student Essay Contest.
Students thoughtfully approached this topic, looking at the question from philosophical, political, and ethical perspectives. They considered human rights and free expression in their arguments, while also taking into account real-world policy considerations and economic implications. They contemplated their own use of the Internet and practically examined the consequences of regulation, or not, on a global scale.
Thank you to all who submitted essays. We received entries from students across the globe with representation from: Bangladesh, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Finland, France, Italy, Germany, Ghana, Haiti, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Malawi, Malaysia, Mauritius, Morocco, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, Rwanda, South Africa, South Korea, Tanzania, Uganda, United Kingdom, United States, and Zimbabwe.
