RMIT Hosts Conference of the Australian Association for Professional and Applied Ethics.

In September, the School of Global, Urban and Social Studies hosted the conference of the Australian Association for Professional and Applied Ethics. The conference was convened by Dr Vandra Harris, and was co-sponsored by RedR, with which Global Studies at RMIT works closely. There were three days of wonderful panels and speakers, and it was fantastic to see current students in the Master of International Development present and presenting, and a few alumni from the BA (International Studies), including Laura McCormark who now works for RedR (pictured here with Julian Lee, who also participated).

 

The conference theme was ‘Ethics in a Crowded World’, and the first day’s focus was on the intersections of ethics and humanitarian practice.
