The University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI)—in collaboration with Canada’s Carleton University’s Centre for Values and Ethics (COVE); the Department of Government of the University of the West Indies-Mona, Jamaica; and the National Integrity Action (NIA) of Jamaica—presents the 2014 Caribbean Conference, organized under the theme “Towards a Corruption-Free Caribbean: Ethics, Values, and Morality,” to take place March 19-21, 2014. The conference will take place at the University College of the Cayman Islands, located at 168 Olympic Way, George Town, Cayman Islands. The deadline for submissions is August 31, 2013.
Description: This conference aims to reflect on various aspects of values and ethics, as they relate not only to the function of Caribbean governments and political parties, but also to the role of every institution—whether educational, religious, or social—across the region. The importance of this conference lies in the principle that values and ethical philosophies are intrinsic to every human activity. Interrogations of these mores have consequences for the policies and practices of public institutions at all levels. In turn, the choices about values in these institutions impact individuals, families, and, indeed, nations. One of the most important exercises, therefore, is to deliberate thoughtfully about values, making sure that decisions are accordingly responsive to the voices of reason and humanity.
If you are interested in being considered as a presenter, please forward to Dr. Stephanie Fullerton-Cooper: a 250-300 word abstract; a 50-word biography information on university affiliation, if applicable; and a photograph, if you have no objection to our displaying it on our website. Deadline for receipt of abstracts is August 31, 2013.
On notification of acceptance of paper for presentation at the conference, delegates should submit papers electronically to Dr. Stephanie Fullerton-Cooper or Ms Erica Gordon. All papers must be in PDF format, and checked that files can be viewed and printed correctly. Deadline for submission of papers is 31 October, 2013.
