Workshop: Ethical underpinnings of climate economics
Hosted by the Centre of Excellence in the Philosophy of the Social Sciences at the University of Helsinki, 11-13 November 2014
This workshop will bring together climate ethicists and economists to discuss the interrelation between climate ethics and economics. Proposals for papers dealing with any aspect of this relation are welcome. In particular, the workshop aims to focus on (1) ethical assumptions underpinning the methodological choices of economics and (2) the ways that economics might accommodate those ethical considerations that seem to challenge the standard way of doing economics.
