The Centre for the Study of Global Ethics, hosted by the Department of Philosophy, is an international hub of interdisciplinary research, impact and engagement. Centre staff work on major issues in international ethics and global justice and train the next generation of students to tackle these issues. We work across global ethics with focus areas on justice and development, environment and health, gender justice and conflict and security. We collaborate with range of partners within and outside the University, including the Birmingham UNESCO Bioethics Unit.
