Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics

Description The purpose of the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics (CAPPE) is to conduct ground-breaking research, to provide policy input, and to promote community discussion and professional dialogue in relation to important and pressing matters of public and political concern. CAPPE is an Australian Research Council–funded Special Research Centre and constitutes the largest concentration of philosophers working on applied philosophy and public ethics in the world.

The Centre's research is organized around six integrated research areas, including criminal justice ethics, business and professional ethics, ethical issues in biotechnology, ethics of emergent technology, ethical issues in political violence and state sovereignty, and welfare ethics.

The Centre is a partnership between the Australian National University, Charles Sturt University, and the University of Melbourne.

CAPPE is the main sponsor of Public Ethics Radio, a regular audio broadcast dedicated to discussion of ethical issues that arise in public life.
