International Development Ethics

Empathy Media lab was commissioned by The Center for Values in International Development to produce a series of dialogues with international development ethicists and practitioners to improve in the effectiveness of international relief and development.

Given that the essence of moral thought is to address and ameliorate human suffering, and to expand human freedoms, how can we afford not to attend to moral clarity when it comes to international relief and development? 

 

The Center for Values in International Development seeks to apply the insights, analytical frameworks, knowledge, and experience that already exist within the field of international development ethics, to guide relief and development practice. 

 

We begin the series of conversations introducing ethics in development that will start to build an effective bridge between the practitioners’ community and the ethicists’ community,  to the mutual benefit of both, and to the significant improvement in the effectiveness of international relief and development.

 

Other topics in this series will explore Climate Justice, Inclusive Development, Empowerment, and Democratic Values.
