Ethics and Economics

Abstract

Ethics and Economics have one domain in common: the question of justice in commercial and non-commercial relations. The interdisciplinary course set up jointly by the Institute of Ethics and Human Rights and the Department of Economics is the only one of its kind in Switzerland. It offers students the requisite methods and elements for reflection for a practical approach to ethical issues in the two domains of governance (private and public) and sustainable development.
This master's degree unit is open to students from all the Faculties. The course also falls under the aegis of the UNESCO Chair of Human Rights and Democracy, based at the Interdisciplinary Institute for Ethics and Human Rights (IIEDH – Institut interdisciplinaire d'éthique et des droits de l'homme).
