EIA occupies a unique and crucial niche in the way that it puts practical ethical questions at the center of the burning issues in international relations, world affairs, and international public policy. It is also fantastic for teaching purposes.

ABOUT "ETHICS & INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS"
"Ethics & International Affairs" aims 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.
