Partners are research institutions that have a long-term and close relationship with the Institute for Futures Studies. Currently we collaborate closely with the following institutes:
The Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics
The goal of the Centre is to encourage and support debate and deeper rational reflection on practical ethics. The Centre as a whole will not promote a particular philosophy, approach, solution or point of view, though its individual members may give an argument to a substantive conclusion as a basis for dialogue, engagement and reflection. It is the method of rational analytic practical ethics that we aim to advance.
