Temporary Working Group

Ethics of mediated suffering

The Ethics of Mediated Suffering Temporary Working group aims at providing an open platform for European research and constructive dialogue around the implications of mediating distant suffering. 

It welcomes members of different subfields with an interest in the problem of communicating human vulnerability and intends to establish a strong international network, which will address the various theoretical, empirical and methodological implications of the issue.
