CODES OF ETHICS DAY 2019 (May 14th 2019)

Open University, London Office, Camden

This is the second in a series of three annual workshops. Participation free and open to anyone with an interest in codes of ethics, and there is no expectation of attendance at the other two events. In last year’s event we looked at codes relating to whole professions (e.g. a code for policing, for the clergy, for journalists, etc.). This year we’ll look at codes dealing with specific behaviours that cut across sectors. Our focus will be on bullying and harassment and on confidentiality and whistle-blowing, with another session on the practical aspects of creating and reviewing a code of ethics in an institutional setting. The day as a whole will be structured around presentations and hands-on work, with participants from both academia and the professional world pooling their diverse experiences and expertise.

For the latest details on the event itself (including how to register – it’s free, you just need to let us know so we can arrange catering), go here.

For information on the series as a whole, see the Code of Ethics Project tab above.


CODES OF ETHICS DAY 2018 (January 26th 2018)

Senate House, University of London

This is a slightly different kind of event to the earlier workshops on role ethics in that it will be targeted at those with a professional responsibility for or interest in codes of conduct across a variety of roles. Academics interested in this topic are also welcome but be aware that the emphasis will be on achieving practical outcomes as much as on theoretical understanding. For more information see our Code of Ethics Project page.
