International Colloquium on Global Ethics of Compromise
Organized by PSL-IRIS Global Studies and CESPRA
This conference wishes to expand compromise understanding in its transnational dimension, little addressed by present studies, in order to test the relevance of a cultural and global approach to compromise.
What are the normative assumptions and solutions proposed to develop morally right or wrong compromise typologies?
Can we develop a universal ethics of compromise or does compromise vary depending on the socio-cultural history of a country ? To what extent is culture relevant in shaping types and norms of compromise?
This symposium examines theoretical issues and practices associated with compromise by adopting a global perspective.
To do so, it will bring together the contributions of European, American and Asian researchers around the following three areas:
1) Compromise Standards
2) Cultures of Compromise
3) Global Governance and Compromise
