Call for Abstracts: Ethics of Change International Student Conference

The way we live, and the norms, beliefs, and attitudes that shape our behavior are constantly changing. Much of that change is driven by people who refuse to accept the status quo and rise to ask critical questions about what is right and wrong in how governments, communities, and individuals treat others, including members of sexual, racial, religious, and other minorities, dissidents, people with disabilities, women, children, nonhuman animals, and the natural environment.

The Centre de Recherche en Éthique (CRÉ) in Montréal, Canada, invites students from across the globe to come together to explore the ethical considerations around social and political activism, and strategies to achieve local and global change. The conference aims to allow students to exchange ideas across borders and make sustainable connections with each other as well as with the CRÉ. Presenting at the conference offers a unique opportunity to showcase your work to an international audience and benefit from the diverse perspectives people from different national, religious, cultural, social, and economic backgrounds bring to issues of moral concern.

The conference will be conducted online via Zoom on Tuesday and Wednesday, 7 and 8 December 2021.

The conference language is English. There is no conference fee. Participation is free for both presenters and non-​presenting attendees. Presenters from low- and middle-income countries will receive an honorarium of 100 Canadian dollars each.

Deadline for abstract submission: 31 August 2021

Deadline for registration: 5 December 2021
