ETHICS EDUCATION AND INTERCULTURAL
Building bridges, bridging gaps
The 4IAEE will take place in the city of Logroño, Spain. The conference is organized by the International Association for Education in Ethics (IAEE) and the Center for Biomedical Research of La Rioja (CIBIR) of the Rioja Salud Foundation (FRS). The CIBIR and the FRS are supported by the Department of Health of the Regional Government of La Rioja, Spain.
The aims of IAEE are (a) to enhance and expand the teaching of ethics at national, regional and internationals levels, (b) to exchange and analyze experiences with the teaching of ethics in various educational settings, (c) to promote the development of knowledge and methods of ethics education, and (d) to function as a global centre of contact for experts in this field, and to promote contacts between members from countries around the world (www.ethicsassociation.org).
Ethics plays an important role in all areas of knowledge. However, the world's education systems vary widely in terms of structure and curricular contents. Also, important differences are among cultures and societies. Taking those issues in consideration, the Program Committee of the 4IAEE presents ten core thematic areas where ethics is involved. Those areas, following the classification proposed by the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED) of the UNESCO, are:
1. Ethics and Education sciences
2. Ethics and Religion, Humanities, Culture, Arts and Languages
3. Ethics and Journalism, Information and Social and Behavioral sciences
4. Ethics and Law, Business and Administration
5. Ethics and Natural Sciences, Environment, Biotechnology and Physical Sciences
6. Ethics and Information and Communication Technologies
7. Ethics and Engineering, Manufacturing, Construction, Architecture and Urbanism
8. Ethics and Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, and Veterinary
9. Ethics and Human Health and Welfare
10. Ethics and Initiatives focus on flourishing Personal skills and development
Anyone working in any of those areas is invited to submit a communication in English to the 4IAEE. Especially encouraged are studies including an intercultural approach. The 4IAEE offers plenary sessions, parallel sessions, and poster presentations. Anyone wishing to present a communication at the 4IAEE should submit an expanded abstract (500 words maximum) before December 1st, 2015 (oral communications or poster presentations). A complete Guide for Authors and information about the Submission Process is available at the 4IAEE Official Web Site (http://4iaee.cibir.es/) .
Accepted abstracts will be published by “Berceo”, the official journal of the Instituto de Estudios Riojanos (IER). Created in 1946, “Berceo” is the most important international peer-review journal of La Rioja, which publishes studies on humanities and social sciences.
