University of the West of England, Bristol, UK

Global Ethics:
10 years into the millennium

What progress have we made in addressing the key ethical issues of our time such as global conflict, climate change, and international injustice?

Confirmed speakers: Simon Caney (University of Oxford) and Darrel Moellendorf (Director, Institute for Ethics and Public Affairs, San Diego State University)

This conference invites papers and panels on all aspects of Global Ethics in 2010. We encourage multidisciplinary papers which address the theory and practice of Global Ethics and global justice from academic, policy and practice perspectives. Issues which we would like to consider include:

  • Development issues like progress towards achieving the MDGs and impact of post-colonial and post-development critiques on development ethics
  • Ecological crises such as global warming and the distribution of increasingly scarce natural resources
  • War and peace concerns such as the ethical issues arising from the War on Terror, humanitarian intervention, privatization of the military and the ethics of peace-keeping
  • Gender issues 20 years since CEDAW, for example, transnational feminism and reproductive rights
  • Human rights issues 60 years after the UDHR
  • Economic injustices and the global market
  • Global networks and civil society
  • Identity politics, multiple identities and transnationalism
