Description
The Centre for Ethics and Value Inquiry (CEVI) carries out research on the ethics of globalization and on ethics under the conditions of globalisation. The centre specializes in researching current sense-making of globalisation phenomena, in particular the 'language of ethics' and its 'existentials' (Edel). The centre is involved in several international networks and platforms and is a founding member of the International Global Ethics Association (IGEA). Being an academic stakeholder, CEVI maintains good and collaborative relations with the civil and the professional community.
