Dr. David Ritchie has been selected as a Global Ethics Fellow by the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs. Global Ethics Fellows develop programs in conjunction with the Carnegie Council’s mission to promote scholarship, teaching, and learning in the field of ethics in international affairs. There are currently 13 Global Ethics Fellows who are working to expand the Council’s Global Ethics Network, which will partner with educational institutions around the world to implement Carnegie sponsored programs. Carnegie programs will be offered at Mercer as part of Dr. Ritchie’s fellowship. As a Global Ethics Fellow Ritchie will primarily be working to promote the activities of the Council in South America (particularly Argentina and Brazil).
Prof. Ritchie will be on sabbatical during the Spring 2012 term. During his sabbatical he will be a Fellow in The Pacifism Project, which is an initiative of the Institute for Ethics, International Law, and Armed Conflict in the Department of Politics and International Affairs at Oxford University. He will be resident at Oxford during the Trinity Term (April to June 2012). During his time at Oxford Dr. Ritchie will be engaged in research to develop and encourage work in the traditions of pacifism and non-violence, with special attention to the relation of those traditions to just war theory.
