First slide


The Global Ethic idea is more relevant today than ever before: How are we able to live well together in the one world that is available to us, regardless of age, religion, gender and ideology? In a multipolar world, marked by opposites and fierce competition, we need learning programmes and theories of what unites us.

In research, “Global Ethic for the 21st Century” means the search for and promotion of theories of the unifying values between people with a view to their fellow world, the environment and posterity. Our Institute’s research topics are “Global Ethic and Sustainable Business”, “Global Ethic and Artificial Intelligence”, “Trust Research” as well as “Global Ethic in Finance” and “Social Innovation”.
