PPOL 519 - Ethics in A Globalized World
This course is designed to raise students’ awareness and understanding of the moral context of international affairs (North and South), and their own role as effective moral agents. The course will challenge students to cultivate their abilities in the discipline of reflective moral thinking, and introduce them to the spectrum of prominent moral theories and their application to critical challenges in the pursuit of human well-being, lives of meaning, and ecological integrity. There are many strong indications that there is a growing influence of explicitly moral thinking in international development, conflict, environment, and political analyses, theory, policy, and practice – a premise that warrants close scrutiny from the outset of the course and repeated consideration in the weeks that follow.
