Description:

Core I: Foundations
The aim of this module is to introduce students to some of the fundamental values that should inform public policy, and to explore some of the practical dilemmas that may arise when these values conflict. Students will examine the meaning of concepts such as democracy, equality and human rights, and look at how these and other values can be implemented by national governments and international organizations. Students will address specific issues where these concepts matter, including free speech, the morality of markets, international interventions, and immigration, as well as exploring the ethical challenges that may arise for those responsible for delivering public policy. Guest speakers will introduce their own research on current policy issues that raise philosophical questions for governments across the world.
