Population and Ethics: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Birth and Death

Call for Papers by 6th July 2016
for up to 8 presentations, with a preference for work from early career researchers and postgraduates, that explore the following topics:

  • The morality of birth: Are procreative decisions moral decisions, and if so what norms and values govern then? How do these decisions interact with wider moral and political debates, or are they essentially private?
  • The changing shape of society: Shifting age demographics and family structures are altering the structure of our communities. How are these changes affecting the balance of responsibilities between generations and how should societies react?
  • Human populations and the environment: Are population controls an appropriate response to environmental change, or are consumption, technology and behaviour more important? Is it right to give priority to expanding human populations, when populations of other species are collapsing?
  • Optimum demographics: Is there such a thing as an optimum population size, and how should this be determined? Are there optimum levels for other demographic features, such as growth rate or age structure, that promote wellbeing and human development?

In order to maximise the impact of this emerging field of interdisciplinary research, participants will be able to contribute their ideas to a video on population ethics to be produced in collaboration with the Westminster think tank Common Vision –
Successful applicants will have their registration fee and travel costs provided free of charge.
