CALL FOR PAPERS
INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON GLOBAL ETHICS
"What is Global Ethics and how to research it?"
27-29 April, 2006 - Ghent, Belgium (deadline for submissions: 1 December
The conference is hosted by the Center for Ethics & Value Inquiry (CEVI) at
Ghent University, Belgium.
AIM OF THE CONFERENCE
The conference brings together scholars in various disciplines (philosophy,
ethics, sociology, geography, international relations, anthropology,
political science, .) on the theme of 'global ethics'. The aim of the
conference is to create a forum where various approaches and issues in
researching 'Global Ethics' are discussed.
This conference maintains two main streams.
Papers in the first stream will discuss adequate delineation of the domain
'Global Ethics', answering the question what makes 'Global Ethics' different
from other domains in ethics.
Papers are called for that offer a framework for delineating 'Global Ethics'
in terms of philosophical outlook, methodology, grounding theory, covered
topics, practical relevance, etc.
Papers in the second stream will cover a particular topic or issue in the
context of globalization. Possible topics or issues are: migration,
corruption, interpersonal relations, technological impact, CSR, economic
institutions, intergovernmental institutions, NGOs and development issues.
This list is not exhaustive (please propose additional topics).
Both empirical as well as conceptual papers are welcome.
