The mission of the Centre for Applied Ethics is to analyse and foster personal and collective practices that promote social justice, peaceful coexistence, people’s dignity and their right to become fully involved in social, political and economic life.
Our work encompasses various approaches. We combine reflection on the ethical minima that people, social organisations, public institutions and companies should respect, with the promotion of social policies and practices that imply progress in the full development of people and societies.
We seek to integrate theoretical ethical reflection and empirical analysis on social processes, their meaning and the factors that influence their development and results.
We carry out our mission in collaboration with a wide network of people, social and business organisations, public institutions and academic centres both locally and internationally. This allows our activity to have outreach at the local, national and international levels.
