Moral reflection in education and research
The Ethics Institute was founded to coordinate and promote ethical reflection in Utrecht University's research and education. Its members study practical, moral issues in their societal, social and political context. The institute, which is part of Philosophy and embedded in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, aims to teach students, teachers and researchers to reflect on the moral aspects of their discipline. Its research and education are focused on philosophical analysis of real-world problems, thus connecting applied work with fundamental theoretical reflection.
