The Globethics Reports are conference summary reports based on conferences that Globethics has organised and conferences that Globethics has attended, for which a summary has been necessary. The reports may include summaries as well as sophisticated recommendations and projects for action. Thematically, all reports relate to ethics or theology in the wide sense. The reports' aims are to offer a single point of entry for all reports, whatever the focus (such as Higher Education, Church leadership, Global Ethics Forum Report, etc.).
