Global Ethics Dialogues

During fall 2021 the Philosophy Department and the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs will run the Global Ethics Dialogues, a program for undergraduate students interested in having deeper conversations on topics in global ethics. 

Each dialogue will last approximately one hour and will take place every three weeks, beginning in mid-September. During each dialogue, you will be invited to explore a pressing issue in international and global affairs from an ethical perspective. Topics include contemporary warfare, humanitarian intervention, climate justice, and immigration. 

Participants will be invited to submit a piece for possible publication on the Berkley Center website and/or to present at the Berkley Center’s student research symposium in spring 2021. 

How to Apply

To apply, please submit a one-page letter of interest and contact details for two referees. In your letter of interest, please address why you would like to do the program and how this program aligns with your intellectual and personal interests and goals. You are welcome, but not required, to share any other information, including biographical information, that helps explain why you’re interested in the program. Your referees can be academic referees (instructors or TAs), but they do not need to be academic referees. 

Please send your application materials to Beba Cibralic at bc785@georgetown.edu.
