Joint Research Project (JRP) in Indonesia

This year for the ALLIES JRP we, along with the other the other ALLIES chapters, are coordinating a research project in Indonesia, with the aid of the Military Attaché for Indonesia. We have coordinated such projects in the past, the latest being in Turkey, and they have been very successful. This trip will most likely take place in early June and last around two weeks. We are looking to send three students, so please contact Manal Cheema at Manal.Cheema@tufts.edu if you are interested. It will be a great experience!

Some have decried this provision, calling it a violation of privacy and a tool too easily manipulated by over-zealous recruiters eager to fulfill mandated quotas.

Justified? The Ethics of War

The language of morality, justice, and values has accompanied America to war since 1776. Today, the US Navy’s new recruiting slogan is “A Global Force for Good.” These ideas are not unique to American culture. Almost every ethical system has attempted to integrate war with morality, from Christian and Islamic just war theory to modern secular international law.
