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. 

Nr 1/2019 Special Issue on Ethics of Sustainable Governance

Deadline for submission: November 5, 2018

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
