Globethics.net is a global network that exists in regional contexts. Regional programmes have been established since 2009 to further enrich global outreach by opening up offices with local contacts and resources and to create a balance between global and contextual ethics. The regional programmes identify and include ethics resources from their regions in the global library, attract new participants, translate website content and documents, engage in regional research programmes and moderate local workgroups.
