Event description

Description

Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) invites you to a public discussion with the aim of raising wider awareness of the Syrian refugee crisis and to develop impactful solutions.

The ‘Ethics, Responsibility and the Syrian Refugee Crisis’ event will take place at GCU on December 1 from 5.30pm - 8.00pm and is part of The Only Way is Ethics, an eight-day festival of ethics which will take place across Glasgow to generate a city-wide conversation, by asking how ethical thinking can make Glasgow a better place for all.

Moderated by Dr Alec Wersun, Senior Lecturer in GCU’s Glasgow School for Business and Society, the event will feature a panel including Hugh McLachlan, Professor of Applied Philosophy; Flutura Shala, Head of Funding Development at the Scottish Refugee Council; Rosie Oglesby, Head of International Disaster Relief at Business in the Community; and GCU student volunteer Jade O'Neil.

The panellists will discuss the moral responsibilities and duties we have with regard to Syrian refugees, their rights and appropriate charitable and political responses to their situations.

Working with Scottish universities, the Scottish Government and Universities Scotland, GCU aims to contribute to find potential solutions to some of the issues facing refugees who settle in Scotland and elsewhere.

As the University for the Common Good, one of our roles is to raise issues of wider public concern, and provide a space for debate amongst all sections of the community. By doing this we can create time for reflection, develop fresh perspectives, and look at complex issues more systematically.

GCU was the first Scottish university to sign up to the United Nations Global Compact. GCU has put social responsibility, ethics and sustainability at the top of the agenda for educating future business leaders by integrating the UN Global Compact-backed Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) throughout the undergraduate and postgraduate curricula.
