The third edition of the international summer academy "Ethics in a Global Context" will start at the beginning of June 2020. Lecturers from various countries and disciplines have confirmed their participation, including the president of the ICRC Peter Maurer.
The "Lucerne Summer University: Ethics in a Global Context" (LSUE) offers 30 master’s and doctoral students from all over the world the opportunity to devote themselves to moral issues across scientific disciplines. It will take place from 4 to 9 June 2020 at the Institute for Social Ethics ISE. The global dialogue will focus on areas such as human rights ethics, gender justice and intersectionality, economic, financial and corporate ethics, ethics of digitisation, automation, robotization and the use of artificial intelligence, bioethics, medical ethics and environmental ethics. "In particular, LSUE offers students and junior researchers, who normally cannot deal with ethical topics in their everyday study and research life, the opportunity to engage in an in-depth examination of current ethical issues," explains Prof Dr Peter G Kirchschlaeger, founder and director of the LSUE.
