Ethics and Human Flourish view Research Group uri icon

Through different theoretical and interdisciplinary perspectives, this group investigates issues related to ethics and the construction of cultures of peace. In the research on ethics, we focus primarily on issues related to human rights, business ethics, citizenship, and social responsibility. As for the construction of cultures of peace, we conceive peace not only as the absence of violence but as a positive peace that is the result of a multiple and continuous process of search. This implies transcending direct, structural and cultural violence through creative ways of overcoming conflicts, recovering peacemaking abilities and fostering conditions of justice and recognition. We are interested in the link between peace studies and education, philosophy, arts, communication, gender studies, literature, history, and international relations.
