Event Description

This conference looks of interest to the Network:

The current crises show that fundamental  transformation in the economy, business, politics,  civil society and culture, is happening and is needed. But how can this transformation take place based on credible values? And how can the seeds for successful transformation be planted in companies and institutions that could benefit from concrete value-based changes in their culture and practice?

The Global Ethics Forum conference 2012 brings together decision makers and experts from the private, public, academic and civil society sectors from all continents. Plenary panels lead to interactive workshops on concrete cases and proposals for ethical transformation, based on recommendations from the Global Ethics Forum conference 2011.

The Future of War: A History, with Lawrence Freedman

"Though most of the literature you will read on the future of war certainly talks about war as between regular armies, as proper fights, now with drones or with autonomous vehicles or robots or whatever, or even painless--cyber and so on--yet actually the reality of war is as it has always been: it is vicious, and it is nasty, and it kills the wrong people, and it does so in considerable numbers."
