The School of Applied Global Ethics (SAGE) is dedicated to the study of global issues of importance for the future of humankind thorugh the academic subjects of International Relations, Peace and Conflict Resolution, Development Studies and Political Economy.
Our vision and values are encapsulated in the words of our title: Applied; Global and Ethical.
- Applied - focused on real world problems and solutions in research and teaching.
- Global - focused on issues such as peace and conflict, climate change, poverty and fairer, more equitable societies which effect all communities, from local to global.
- Ethical - questioning the underlying assumptions and values behind our collective decisions and actions, and exploring notions of justice, responsibility and accountability in our practice.
SAGE aims to be widely known and highly regarded by our core stakeholders, and maintain strong links with NGOs and policy, practitioner and activist communities. Our research is focussed on problems faced by these communities with the aim of making a positive difference now and in the future.
Our graduates will be able to critically engage with the challenges of the coming century and able to work on the common problems that we face as a global community, equipped with the tools to be effective, ethical practitioners in their learning, careers and wider lives
