You can access on this website all communications related to the conference "Global Ethics of Compromise Colloquium" (March 7th-8th, 2019) which took place at Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS), Paris.

The present conference aims at expanding the understanding of the controversial concept of compromise in its cultural and transnational dimension, in order to test the relevance of a cultural or global approach to compromise. To do so, it will bring together the contributions of European, American and Asian Philosophers.

What are some normative assumptions and models used to elaborate compromise typologies?
Can we develop an ethics of compromise that is universal, or to what extent compromise vary depending on the socio-cultural history of a country?
How is culture relevant in shaping norms of compromise?
