About the Newport Social Ethics Research Group

The Newport Social Ethics Research Group (SERG) combines research and teaching in a range of fields in the social domain, with special emphasis on political, social and ethical theory - and on the points of intersection between these areas. At the heart of the Group's concerns is the aim of bringing theoretical debates and developments to bear on contemporary social trends, policies and controversies. As well as pursuing individual research, members of the group have been regularly involved in collaborative research projects funded by external bodies such as the AHRC, ESRC, HEFCW and the European Commission. The Group's new MA programme in Social Ethics and Public Advocacy constitutes a further step in the direction of effective, meaningful integration of the insights of theory with the challenges of policy, and practice.



Current SERG members: Professor Phillip Cole (Professor of Applied

Philosophy, Associate Dean for Research & Enterprise); Professor Steve Smith

(Professor of Political Philosophy and Social Policy); Dr Gideon Calder

(Reader in Ethics and Social Philosophy, SERG Director); Dr Marit Hovdal

Moan (Leverhulme Visiting Research Fellow); Dr Enzo Rossi (Research Fellow

in Social Ethics); Mark Reardon (PhD student); Francesco Chiesa (PhD

student); and Gillian Smith (PhD student).
