Globethics.net marks #GlobalEthicsDay2015

We joined proposing educational material and by sharing information of others who joined the Global Ethics Day 2015.

Globethics.net is joining nearly 60 ethics-related organisations from around the world in support of the second Global Ethics Day on Friday 16 October 2015.

"I welcome this important initiative, which shares our vision of not only addressing ethical issues from an academic point of view but also in a collaborative way at a practical level", comments by Prof. Dr Christoph Stückelberger, Executive Director and Founder, Globethics.net.

Dr Stückelberger continues, "Our main theme at Globethics.net this year is Responsible Leadership and on the occasion of Global Ethics Day 2015, I encourage you to take a look at one of the lectures in the Globethics Academy series on Responsible Leadership,Ethical Challenges in the Public Service (register for free to access the lectures), by Joan Dubinsky (Board member of Globethics.net and Former Chief Ethics Officer of the United Nations). Also, our newest publication in the Global Series ‘Sustainable Ethics: Ecology, Economy and Ethics' shows how ecology, economy and ethics are all needed to reach the Sustainable Development Goals recently adopted by the United Nations. Join us in supporting Global Ethics Day to continue to take forward the value of values globally."  

Global Ethics Day is a project of the US based Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs inaugurated in 2014 during its centennial celebrations. The idea of the day, as conceived by the Carnegie Council, is to engage the global constituency of ethics practitioners as well as the general public on issues of ethics in international affairs. It was launched basically as an educational programme with practical outcomes around the topic of how shared ethical and moral values can be incorporated into action to confront international challenges.

Our regional office Globethics.net Turkey also participated in the Global Ethics Day by organising a roundtable with the members of TEID (Ethics and Reputation Society). Ethics and compliance officers attended the event.

The Global Ethics Day was celebrated during the October edition of the Hidiv Palace roundtables on the comparative study of international laws on anti-corruption (FCPA, UK Bribery Act and Brazil’s Clean Company Law). Twitter hashtags have been created on this occasion “#DünyaEtikGünü” and “#GlobalEthicsDay”. An informative card has been distributed with the quote “Love means never having to bribe someone to stay” with the logos of TEID and Turkish Integrity Center of Excellence (TICE). The message was also sent out in a newsletter to more than 2700 people.

Slowing the Proliferation of Major Conventional Weapons with Jonathan D. Caverley

The news is full of discussions on how to prevent further nuclear proliferation. But you can't understand a conflict like Syria without talking about major conventional weapons, such as artillery, missile defense, and aircraft, says military strategist Jonathan Caverley. Since the U.S. is by far the world's largest producer of such weapons, Caverley proposes that it creates a cartel, similar to OPEC, to slow down sales.

Fractured Continent: Europe's Crises and the Fate of the West, with William Drozdiak

In some ways Europe is more fragmented than at any time in the last three decades, says Drozdiak. There's a north/south split between wealthy creditor nations and deeply indebted ones; an east/west divide, as Poland and Hungary revert to nationalism; pressures of regional separatism; Brexit; and the migrant crisis. Then there's Trump, who sees Europe as a burden and economic rival. 2018 could be a pivotal year. What will happen?
