Unit 8: Foreign Relations, Foreign Trade, Foreign Aid, and Military Intervention
In this unit, we examine ethical issues that arise in foreign policy.
What is America's ethical role in the world? Should we be the world's policeman? Do we have a duty to act multilaterally or unilaterally? If so, under what circumstances? What is America's duty to care for the poor, sick, or infirm outside of our borders? Should we place legal and ethical constraints on international trade? How do we balance moral obligations with national security realities and global financial realities?
Again, we use the five frameworks we discussed in Unit 2 to examine these questions.
Completing this unit should take you approximately 8 hours.
