Ethics and Public Policy Conference

Thursday 6 June 2019 – Friday 7 June 2019

This conference celebrates the publication of ‘The Routledge Handbook of Ethics and Public Policy’ edited by Annabelle Lever and Andrei Poama, which explores questions such as:

What does it mean to do public policy ethics today?
How should philosophers engage with ethical issues in policy-making when policy decisions are circumscribed by political and pragmatic concerns?
How do ethical issues in public policy differ between areas such as foreign policy, criminal justice, or environmental policy?

The conference features a number of authors and key themes from the book, as well as related issues of urgent public concern where a philosophical approach can help us consider how such issues should be addressed.
