Do Morals Matter?Online Symposium

As we enter the spring of 2020, the is greeted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, letting us observe once again that many issues have no boundaries. The moral choices involved in leadership is bound to become more important and impact world stability or turbulence. As far as Taiwan is concerned when facing the global order, we should seriously consider its foreign policy from a moral perspective.

When those in power cross moral boundaries, what is the future path? Joseph Nye, former dean of the Harvard Kennedy School and a proponent of soft power, recently published a book entitled Why Morals Matter? The book uses intention, means, and results to analyze morality incisively, analyzing the role of morals in foreign policy and how leaders should choose between national interests and moral public welfare.

Due to the pandemic, Professor Nye is unable to come to Taiwan, In order to further explore leadership and the international state of affairs, the Fair Winds Foundation will cooperate with Commonwealth Global Views Publishing and hold an online symposium on Why Morals Matter? Featuring Jiang Yi-huah (former premier and Fair Winds Foundation chairman), Annette Lu (former vice president), and Su Chi (former secretary-general of the National Security Council). We welcome all to participate in this online discussion examining the moral choices in leadership as well as Taiwan’s future.
