This three-part discussion forum takes stock of existing work on and future research needs in identifying and addressing ethical challenges and the risks of moral injury the Covid-19 crisis poses for policy makers, healthcare providers and other key sectors, as well as wider society.

We are keen to explore emerging issues at every level, from the strategic down to the very practical, and to include the perspectives of a wide range of decision-makers, practitioners and stakeholders as both agents and subjects of policies and processes.

Panelists and running order:

  • Policy decisions and implementation – ethics and moral injury, Dr Andrea Ellner, Lecturer in the Defence Studies Department.
  • Medical ethics and moral injury prevention – playing cards as decision aids, Professor David Whetham, Professor of Ethics and the Military Profession in the Defence Studies Department, Dr Marina Miron, Research Fellow in the Department of Defence Studies and Professor Martin Bricknell, Department of War Studies. 
  • Research and networking under physical distancing rules – Dr Rachel Kerr, Reader in International Relations and Contemporary War in the Department of War Studies, and Dr Maria Varaki Lecturer in the Defence Studies Department.
