Ethics Abroad: Travel with FASPE Scholars

FASPE’s Ethics Abroad is a week-long intensive program for established professionals and others who are interested in engaging in FASPE’s approach to professional ethics and history. Participants travel to Berlin and Poland, visit historic sites, attend seminars on the role of professionals in Nazi Germany and engage in open discussions about contemporary issues of professional ethics. Trips are organized with a limited number of participants to ensure meaningful dialogue; they are led by FASPE faculty, comprised of leading historians and ethicists in the professions. Ethics Abroad serves as an opportunity to address standards of leadership and professional integrity within a unique historical context.

After considering the actions and motivations of the professionals in Nazi Germany, faculty and participants engage in discussions about ethical issues that face the professions today—such as:

  • medical research methodologies
  • the role of corporate and CEO activism
  • the difference between legal compliance and ethical behavior; why corporate social responsibility is not sufficient
  • journalism in a “post-truth” era
  • the role of clergy as ethical, and not just religious, leaders
  • the ethics of the future
