"Ethics and 21st Century Challenges" - Seminar Series


Seminar Banner

This seminar series is held in collaboration with the Institute for Science and Ethics, an Oxford Martin School Institute

The challenges of the 21st century are vast - wide in range, global in scale, and complex in nature - and many of them are being addressed directly by researchers in the Oxford Martin School. This seminar series will interrogate the science, ethics and social implications arising from some of the most exciting academic research going on at the School. The series will feature academics who are working to address critical global challenges, from healthcare to resource scarcity and climate change to financial risk, and ethicists who are trying to identify, understand and inform the ethical and societal implications of such research. Together, they will explore the ethical dimensions of cutting-edge and ground-breaking work, and reflect on what kinds of practical safeguards, policy frameworks or public opinions should be considered in these contexts.
