ICTS Webinar Series Spring 2021 –
“The Ethics of Migration: A Journey from Ethics of Care to Affective Pedagogy”
by Dr Treasa Campbell (MIC),
22 Apr 2021 @ 18:00 GMT (online)

The Irish Centre for Transnational Studies (ICTS) is delighted to invite you to our next webinar, taking place on Thursday April 22th, 2021 @ 6pm.

Within the framework of the normative ethical theory known as Ethic of Care this paper seeks to explore the problem of motivation as it arises in Migration Ethics and the role of affective pedagogies in this context. The paper will first set out the key tenets of the Ethics of Care approach with an emphasis on how it characterises the role of emotion in ethical decision making. Turning to the applied ethical issues which arise in Migration Ethics the paper concentrates on the problem of motivation. This problem exposes the gap between the principles we may accept in relation to what is morally required of us and the actions that reflect those principles in our everyday life. Drawing on Care Ethics characterisation of the epistemic role of emotion the paper proceeds to explore the viability of deploying a form of affective pedagogy within Global Citizenship Education in an effort to mitigate to some extent the motivation problem.
