Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence

The Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence is dedicated to exploring ethical issues from a global perspective, to nurturing international awareness and understanding of our common humanity through the study, teaching, and practice of ethics, and to the pursuit of excellence in all human endeavors. Over the 20-21 academic year, the Inamori Center will provide space to have a prolonged conversation on a topic of consequence: JUSTICE. We will draw on the insight and expertise of Inamori Ethics Prize winners as well as top scholars and practitioners in a thematic series of events and programming addressing the topic of JUSTICE from multiple perspectives, locally and globally. The Conversations on JUSTICE series will culminate with the presentation of the 2020 Inamori Ethics Prize to Judge Silvia Fernández de Gurmendi in the fall of 2021.
