NEW YORK, June 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "This is an adventure such as has never been tried before," announced Andrew Carnegie in February 1914 when he launched the organization now known as Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs.

Carnegie expected the group, originally called the Church Peace Union, to do nothing less than help abolish war forever--"as it certainly will be someday"--and then give its funds to the poor.

A hundred years after "the war to end all wars" are we any closer to world peace?  Is such a thing even possible?  As part of its Centennial activities, Carnegie Council's journal, "Ethics & International Affairs," presents a special roundtable, "Reflections on International Peace," with contributions from five distinguished scholars.

These journal articles are all free online until July 31, and we encourage you to post comments.
