Centre for Applied Ethics

Director: Dr Andrew Edgar

The Centre for Applied Ethics, founded in 1989, facilitates academic research in applied ethics and to promote the impact of that research within and beyond academia.

Current projects focus on the ethics of health care:

Think About Health is a network of academics, clinicians, and managers discussing the culture and values appropriate to health care organisations. Our discussions centre on our regular open conferences. For more information, see the Think About Health website.

Health Care Analysis is an academic journal concerned with all aspects of health and health care, including education and public policy, institutional organisation and decision-making, and professional practice. For more information, see the Health Care Analysis website.

We are currently working on a new project concerning the use of public libraries in promoting health care. More information will be provided here as the project develops.

If you are interested in contributing to our projects, or in studying for an MPhil or PhD with the Centre for Applied Ethics, then please contact the Director:
