About

With members from departments/schools including Chemistry, Computer Science, Criminology, Economics, Education, Engineering, Health Sciences, History, Law, Management, Medicine, Philosophy, Politics, Psychology, Sociology and Social Policy, and from research centres including C2G2, CELS, CLEG, HEAL and the Parkes Institute, the Southampton Ethics Centre organises ethics-focused events and showcases ethics-related multi-disciplinary work already under way at the University.

The Southampton Ethics Centre organises ethics-related events, aims to nurture collaborations across the University on ethics-related issues, and to publicise ethics-focused events.

Among the events organised by the Southampton Ethics Centre are the annual Ethical Challenges Lecture, and the annual PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics) Lecture.

We also host a Southampton Ethics Centre Seminar each semester, as well as a series of online workshops, on topics such as the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence, the Ethics of Race, and the Ethics of Climate Change.

We also publish regular bulletins containing information about ethics-related events and activities across the university.
