FASPE’s Ethics Abroad Travel Program is an inspiring and compelling week-long program for intellectually curious travelers who are interested in engaging in FASPE’s distinctive approach to ethics and history. Participants travel to Berlin and Poland, with FASPE’s unique VIP access to historic and cultural sites (and their curators).

Ethics Abroad is a one week combination of lively conversation around critical issues of the day; engaging in the cultural (and culinary) fascinations of Berlin and Krakow; and a personalized exploration of what is perhaps the most important site of the 20th century, Auschwitz/Birkenau.

FASPE’s mission is to analyze and understand the role of the professions and of individual professionals in Nazi Germany; and, with that background and perspective, to consider issues of contemporary professional ethics. We explore the complicated question of what we can learn from the perpetrators that can guide us in the complexities of the 21st century.

While learning about the actions and motivations of the professionals in Nazi Germany, faculty and participants engage in lively seminars and informal conversations about ethical issues that face the professions today—such as:

  • The role of the professions in America’s fraught racial history and present
  • How can we provide equitable and high-quality health care within the system of Commercial Medicine?
  • What does it mean to be an ethical business professional?
  • Journalism and social media in a "post-truth" era
  • How can clergy be ethical leaders?
  • Technology and the ethics of the future

Trips are organized with a select and limited number of participants to ensure meaningful dialogue and special attention. They are led by FASPE faculty, composed of leading historians, professionals and ethicists.
