No 1 (2019)

This issue features papers that directly or indirectly discuss methods used in applied ethics. The choice of method, or combination of methods, should be done in a way that can most effectively help to achieve reflective balance. This can help enhance our understanding of all considerations relevant to a given situation. As with tools, we select particular methods because they are well suited to the task we seek to accomplish.

Nr 2/2019 Special Issue on Ethics of Sustainable Governance

Deadline for submission: May 5, 2019

This special issue of EiP invites authors to submit papers on normative issues dealing with governance for a sustainable future. Relevant areas may connect to e.g. biodiversity and ecosystem services; oceans; land use; built environments; climate change mitigation; circular economy/ smart bio-economy. As applied ethics is multidisciplinary at its outset we welcome contributions from various disciplinary fields. We are particularly interested in contributions bringing in view concrete cases and contexts of sustainable governance.

The normative focus of the paper may deal with any of the following:
• Governance towards reduced poverty (developing and developed countries)
• Context-sensitive models of governance
• Responsible research and innovation
• The problem of short-termism
• Local, national and global institutions of governance
• Justice between current and future generations
• The resource curse
• Tragedy of the commons
