Research in Ethics and Globalisation (REG) was established in January 2011 and is a collaborative initiative between the Department of International Relations and the Department of Legal Theory under the auspicies of Globalisation Studies Groningen. REG is led by two Section Chairs, Dr Chris Lamont and Prof Andrej Zwitter. Dr Lamont is positioned within the Department of International Relations and International Organisation. Prof Zwitter is positioned within the Department of Legal Theory as well as the Department of International Relations and International Organisation.
REG is committed to facilitating a global dialogue on ethics and governance in the context of an increasingly globalised world. The principal aim of REG is to provide a vibrant international and interdisciplinary forum for the promotion of debate, teaching, research and other policy relevant projects related to issues of ethics and globalisation. Through deepening cooperation with institutions of higher learning and civil society in transition countries in the Middle East, North Africa, East Asia, South East Europe, and beyond, REG aims to become a focal point for the study and practice of ethics in transition. In particular, we examine the intersection between the theory and practice of ethics in a globalised context. The ethics of governance, both within and among states, is increasingly salient in the context of a myriad of scholarly and policy debates including democratisation and transitional justice.
