Course content

The Centre for Law, Ethics & Society (CLES), part of the Research Institute for Law, Politics & Justice, brings together academics, researchers and postgraduate students with interests in ethics and law. Keele University has a strong tradition of working in the field of ethics and applied ethics that goes back over twenty years. Current research strengths include ethical issues relating to public health, medical technologies, the environment, risk and harm, policing and criminal justice, resource allocation, and global justice. A key strength of much recent work in the Centre is analysis and exploration of the contribution of ethics to public policy. Members of the Centre have strong interests in other areas of philosophy (e.g. metaphysics, political philosophy, philosophy of mind and psychology, economics and law) and bring these to bear on their research in ethics and applied ethics.
