Collection Description

Latin American Ethics Collection

This collection has a focus on Latin American Ethics ; it is a thematic effort that has been pursued by South America Regional Programme team since 2011, thanks to a small hub of committed librarians, theologians and experts in applied ethics, who have been doing the enormous work of submitting and indexing thousands documents in this collection.

The collection is structured by Ethics subjects and contains mainly documents in  Spanish and Portuguese. This collection makes known the ethical research in the Latin American context, while facilitating networking and research on Latin American Ethics locally and globally.
