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, functions, and implementation. After an introduction to the traditions and challenges of ethics in international relations, emphasis is put on the traditions and current issues of cosmopolitan ethics. Cosmopolitanism is 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 and a cosmopolitan democracy. A concluding discussion addresses the question of moral progress in international relations.
