About Ethics and World Politics

Formed in 2015, the distinctive contribution of the Working Group will be to forge a vibrant research community around three central questions:

  1. how do we theorise ethics, world politics and their interrelationship
  2. how is theoretical reflection on ethics and world politics related to the practical conduct of politics
  3. what are the unique challenges and responsibilities of teaching ethics and world politics.

Recognising theoretical and methodological heterogeneity, we exercise leadership in the sub-discipline by organising debates on pressing themes via workshops, seminars, and small conferences; supporting early career scholars and postgraduate students; and facilitating engagements between academics, policy-makers and practitioners.
