Global Ethics: An Introduction

Manuel Dries, The Open University

Widespread poverty, closed borders and catastrophic climate change

In our interconnected world, we face challenges that demand global solutions. But how do you find the right solutions?

On this course, you will use key ethical theories to examine the most important global issues of our time. What should be done about widespread poverty? Can it be right for countries to control migration and close borders? And what about climate change: Why care about preserving the world for future generations anyway?

Upon completing this course, you’ll be better equipped to think about and debate some of today’s most complex global ethical challenges.

This course is for anyone interested in global ethics, or those considering further study in global challenges and philosophy.

There are no specific software requirements or tools needed to study this course.
