Nr 1/2018 Special Issue on Globalization, Cosmopolitanism, and Migration: 

Ethics of Inclusion and Exclusion

Guest editors: Yusuf Yuksekdag (Linköping University), Elin Palm (Linköping University)
Deadline for submission: December 15, 2017

Transnational migration is a serious challenge that cannot be addressed by a focus on the single nation states alone but must rather be dealt with by recognizing the various bilateral and transnational aspects of emigration and immigration and its effects on different segments within sender and receiving countries. Considering the multi-layered nature of the issue, there are also many challenges and issues faced at the application level by practitioners and policymakers.

The aim of this special issue of Etikk i praksis is to combine papers which, from various perspectives, illustrate different dimensions of inclusion/exclusion practices, and offer criteria for fair migration governance. In addition, this special issue aims at exploring a blend of empirical data/studies and theoretical analyses. Contributions from practitioners are especially welcomed.

The special issue will revolve around the following overarching questions: What is required in order for transnational migration governance to be fair and effective, especially at the application level? What if any obligations do developed nations have towards irregular migrants and in force of what? What are the challenges of current integration practices? If present-day migration, at least to some extent, is a product of an unequal global order established through colonialism, what moral obligations do former colonies have regarding forcibly displaced individuals? In what ways should the states manage their skilled labor? What are the ethical implications of the unified supranational refugee/asylum policies (such as the recent efforts by the EU)?

Nr 2/2018 Special Issue on Methods in Applied Ethics

Deadline for submission: May 5, 2018

What are the methods of applied ethics? What are good methods? The methodological landscape of applied ethics ranges from «top down» applications of ethical theory (utilitarianism, deontology, contractualism, virtue ethics) to real world issues, to principlism and less theory-oriented approaches such as casuistry, pragmatism, feminist ethics and narrativism. Moreover, reflective equilibrium approaches have been proposed that seek to balance different theories and considerations and yield coherence among a plurality of ethical, political, religious and empirical beliefs. More recently, approaches emphasising the importance of interdisciplinary research have gained ground, adding to the methodological mix such concepts as Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and «embedded» ethical research.
