The Sié Center's responsible engagement project is built on the premise that responsible and constructive policy engagement is most likely when scholars reflect on the ethical dilemmas they face. With support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, this project aims to raise awareness around the ethical concerns that arise in policy-engaged scholarship and encourage critical reflection and dialogue around them.
To accomplish this we have created an Ethical Engagement Panel and a platform where scholars can ask for anonymous advice on ethical challenges they face. We have also conducted research including surveys, case studies, and individual reflections on particular challenging situations. And we have developed curriculum and a series of trainings on responsible engagement.
This website is a portal to our ongoing work. On it, you can ask an anonymous question, browse the questions and answers others have posed, see individual reflections, access our research outputs, and find information on our trainings and curriculum.

We appreciate the participation of Jon Western, whose unexpected passing left a void in the IR community. He was an intellectual leader in the field whose ethical compass was strong. We are sad to lose his energetic efforts.
