The ethics of the Covid-19 pandemic – online workshop
June 3-4 2021
The Covid-19 pandemic raises a number of urgent ethical issues. For example, to what extent should individual freedoms be restricted to stop the spread of the virus? How should advantages and disadvantages of measures taken against the pandemic be distributed among the population? Who should be prioritized in vaccination, nationally and globally? What is the ethical significance of emotions or attitudes such as fear and hope in this situation? This workshop will gather philosophers and other scholars to discuss the ethics of the ongoing pandemic. We welcome submissions addressing normative issues as well as empirical issues with a bearing on normative questions. The workshop has a particular focus on the Nordic context, but international perspectives are also welcome.
The workshop marks the 20th anniversary of NTNU’s Programme for Applied Ethics. Papers presented at the workshop will be considered for publication in a special issue on Covid-19 of the journal Etikk i Praksis – Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics.
Key note speakers:
Abstracts of no more than 400 words can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: April 4 2021
Authors will be notified of acceptance by April 18 2021.
