The topics in the spring issue of Carnegie Council's "Ethics & International Affairs" journal include human rights, statelessness, refugee camps, immigration ethics, and a section on the Responsibility to Protect (RtoP) and the refugee protection regime.

Ethics & International Affairs Journal, Spring 2017 Issue
Ethics & International Affairs aims to help close the gap between theory and practice by publishing essays that integrate rigorous thinking about principles of justice and morality into discussions of practical dilemmas.

Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs presents the Spring 2017 issue of its acclaimed academic journal, "Ethics & International Affairs."

It includes essays by Michael Ignatieff on human rights and the ordinary virtues; Kristy A. Belton on the prospect of ending statelessness in the Americas, the second of a two-part series; and Carmen Gómez Martín on the problematic nature of refugee camps as de facto long-term solutions. It also contains two features, one by Dan Bulley and the other by Alise Coen, presenting differing views on the relationship between the Responsibility to Protect (RtoP) and the refugee protection regime, with a brief introduction by Jason Ralph and James Souter; a review essay on immigration ethics by Linda Bosniak; and book reviews by Andrew Altman, Andrew Hurrell, and William Gochberg.
