Nigel Dower

Lecture:  Development and Globalisation - the Ethical Challenges
Academic Discussant

Nigel Dower is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Aberdeen. His main research interests are in the field of the ethics/philosophy of development, environment and international relations. Much of his research work has stemmed from his involvement in the 1970s in several organisations campaigning for a more just and peaceful world, through membership of the World Development Movement and the United Nations Association (he is still Chairman of the Aberdeen Branch of UNA). More recently his work has focussed more on the challenge of globalisation, especially its implications for our understanding of global civil society, on the relevance of the Earth Charter and of the widening but contested understanding of security.

Dr. Dower is the author of World Poverty Challenge and Response, Ebor Press, York, 1983; World Ethics: The New Agenda, Edinburgh University Press, 1998; and An Introduction to Global Citizenship, Edinburgh University Press, 2003 and has edited Ethics and Environmental Responsibility, Gower Publishing, 1989 and Global Citizenship - A Critical Reader, edited by Nigel Dower and John Williams, Edinburgh University Press, 2002.
