International Ethics

Research Themes

  • Justice in a Globalised World explores global distributive justice, immigration, multiculturalism, gender and identity-politics and climate change—encompassing different variations on cosmopolitanism as an approach to international politics.  
  • The Ethics of International Security looks at force and coercion short of war, ‘information warfare’, terrorism and counter-terrorism, global and regional security governance, humanitarianism, the responsibility to protect (R2P), cybersecurity and nuclear weapons.  
  • War and Military Ethics includes justifications for war, just conduct in war, pacifism and conscientious objection, as well as ethical questions surrounding private military and security companies, new technologies of war and intelligence collection. 
  • Moral Responsibility and Formal Organisations explores the duties of states, multinational corporations, international financial institutions and intergovernmental organisations—within the context of environmental harm, human rights, financial crises, genocide prevention and foreign aid.
