Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics
The Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics is committed to raising awareness of ethical issues in the broader community and stimulating debate in the public arena. To this end, the Centre has an open access policy for their resources which are freely available to the public and include journal articles, podcasts and video lectures. Topics of discussion range from geoengineering, neuroethics and synthetic biology, to disability, abortion and disorders of consciousness.
TheCentre was established in 2003 with the support of the Uehiro Foundation on Ethics and Education of Japan. It is an integral part of the philosophy faculty of Oxford University, one of the notable centres of academic excellence in philosophical ethics. All the talks from the 2013 Carnegie-Uehiro-Oxford Ethics Conference: Happiness and Well-Being are available on the University’s podcast website under a Creative Commons licence.
