FALLS CHURCH, VA – The first 13-week series of Carnegie Council's Global Ethics Forum premiers nationally on MHz Worldview in September.
Custom-designed for television, Global Ethics Forum is a half-hour international affairs program debuting on the MHz Worldview Lecture block on Sunday, September 5 at 2 PM ET.
How do global leaders make decisions? What moral codes guide them – and how do those codes evolve?
The Council's regular scheduled time on MHz will include two half-hour shows back to back: one contemporary discussion and one timeless classic.
Global Ethics Forum is a weekly television show produced by the Carnegie Ethics Studio, a division of the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs. Each week, different experts navigate the murky moral landscapes presented by global politics, development, and international business. New episodes often confront challenges relevant to current events, while episodes in the Carnegie Classics series address longer-term ethical topics.
The series program premier will feature political scientist and journalist Stephen Kinzer on U.S. relations with Iran and Turkey in the first half-hour, followed by historian Niall Ferguson on the financial crash and the symbiotic relationship between China and the U.S. that he has labeled "Chimerica."
"We are delighted to be airing on MHz's Worldview Channel, which is a perfect fit for Carnegie Council programming," says Carnegie Ethics Studio Director William Vocke. "MHz airs a wide range of views and its mission is international education. The Global Ethics Forum adds an important voice to the MHz mix, which is available in over 30 million homes nationwide."
Launched in 2008, the Council's in-house Carnegie Ethics Studio audio records, videotapes, and edits over 70 events a year, and makes these shows available worldwide, free of charge.
In addition to Global Ethics Forum, the Carnegie Ethics Studio produces: Global Ethics Corner, a weekly 2-minute multimedia segment on ethical issues in the news, video and audio recordings of Carnegie Council events and interviews, Video and audio podcasts via iTunes and RSS feed, radio interview programs, transcripts and YouTube clips.
Carnegie Ethics Studio productions are made possible in part by generous funding from Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Dillon Fund, the Uehiro Foundation, and by individual donations from Carnegie Council members and supporters.
