Vol. 6 (2015): Societas Ethica’s Annual Conference 2015: Globalisation and Global Justice, August 20-23, Linköping, Sweden

The proceedings from the Societas Ethica’s annual conference 2015 looks different than previous years. We do not publish the full papers this year. The reason for this change is that less and less papers have been submitted the last years due to the fact that most academic journals are hesitant to publish articles that already have been published in conference proceedings. So, in order to be able to mirror the conferences, the board of Societas Ethica decided that it is better that the conference proceedings contain the paper abstracts.
The proceedings contain three parts; first, the thematic introduction by the President, then the key note speeches and the responses to the key notes and finally, the conference paper abstracts.

I want to thank all who contributed to the conference proceedings. Thank you key note speakers and respondents for your willingness to share your contributions and thank you paper presenters for letting us publish your abstracts!
