.....Dates: 15th – 17th June 2010

Papers, Workshop proposals and Authors sessions are welcome from both academics and practitioners in all areas of professional and applied ethics. The conference theme may be interpreted broadly by presenters. You do not need to be a member of the Association to make a submission.
One of the fundamental aims of the AAPAE is to create a forum for representatives of the professions to meet and discuss ethical issues pertinent to their practice. It is about applied and professional ethics and this is the core theme of the conference.
To facilitate achieving this objective, professional and academic streams have been organised for the presentation of papers at the conference, including but not restricted to, the following themes:
- Moral Philosophy
- Political Philosophy
- Public Policy
- Media Ethics
- Police Ethics
- Business Ethics
There is an opportunity to add to these topics if a number of papers are submitted exploring issues pertinent to a profession or theme. Please contact the conference convenor for details.
