the academic research
My belief in the potential of academic research for global governance and my interest in inquiring into the idea of reflexivity to inspire that academic research motivated me to engage in philosophical academic research myself as part of this project. My objective is not to collect another academic degree but to engage in an inspiring dialogue with scholars on relevant ideas and topics, and on how academic research can indeed play a role as provider of ideas and language, but also as organiser of a credible platform for reflection on global governance.
The academic research in the context of this project is undertaken in the form of a PhD in moral philosophy at the Centre for Ethics and Value Inquiry (CEVI). CEVI is part of the Faculty of Arts and Philosophy of the University of Ghent and engages in research and teaching on the ethics of globalisation and on ethics under the conditions of globalisation (http://www.cevi-globalethics.ugent.be/).
