Book and Collection launch
Day 2, Book Launch. During the Global Ethics Forum 2016, Globethics.net published and launched 6 new books and the Latin America collection. The launch was introduced by Ignace Haaz, Globethics.net Publications Manager, who led the event.
The first addition to this series marks an important and timely contribution from the former Executive Director, Christoph Stückelberger, consisting of over 40 years of writing, research and contributions to academia—his magnum opus—collected into four volumes, as he steps down from his current position and transitions into his new role as President of the Board of Foundation. The range of topics covered in the 4 volumes touch all aspects of life, from religion to political ethics, to Environmental to bioethics and contents of the volumes vary between English, French and German, relevant for both academics and non-professionals.
