Symposium on the Global Ethic, Law, and Policy

November 3- 4, 2011

Since its adoption by the World Parliament of Religions in 1993, and as a result of the extensive work of its drafter, Hans Küng, the Global Ethic has been related to many areas of human activity, including economics, politics, pedagogy, and international relations. The focus of this two-day symposium was on two fields that have received comparatively less attention in connection with the Global Ethic: law and policy.
