Ethics for one world

29May2017 16:00 - 18:00


The world faces serious problems that require global solutions. Peter Singer (Princeton University and University of Melbourne) discusses the ethical imperative to strengthen global governance.

Climate change is the most obvious, but by no means the only one of these problems. Therefore the ethical imperative to strengthen forms of global governance has not changed.  Yet recent elections have shown that moving ahead with globalization poses the danger of an electoral backlash.  In this difficult situation, what should advocates of a global ethical stance do?

The lecture is followed by an interview.
