  • climate justice;
  • the legitimacy of international law;
  • problems and pathologies of contemporary civilization;
  • cosmopolitanism;
  • east-west perspectives;
  • conflict theories;
  • democracy and participation;
  • feminist ethics;
  • globalization and development;
  • the contemporary crisis of capitalism;
  • global citizenship;
  • epistemological, ontological and methodological dimensions of researching global ethical issues.

The scholarship of teaching and research represented in the programme is truly international in scope, drawing from scholars from around the world with specializations in many of the major regions. It involves an innovative collaboration between the disciplines of philosophy and sociology that offers students strong foundations in both theory and research. Completing the course will provide students with good academic and vocational opportunities associated with this key emerging field.
