Inhalt The seminar addresses ethical concerns in the practice of international relations in a globalized world. It strengthens the students’ ethical judgment in regard to moral agendas and their justifications, their functions, and the conditions of their implementation. After an introduction to the traditions and challenges of ethics in international relations, emphasis is put on the secular and theological traditions and current debates of cosmopolitan ethics. These traditions and debates are especially relevant to a variety of practical issues of an emerging global civil society, amongst them the application of human right standards to issues of poverty, mobility and migration, as well as to issues of a new political world order. A concluding discussion addresses the question of moral progress in international relations.
