The Kenan Institute for Ethics’ Walter Sinnott-Armstrong will take part in a public forum Feb. 16 discussing the ethics of boycotts.

Armstrong, the Chauncey Stillman Professor in Practical Ethics in the Department of Philosophy and the Kenan Institute for Ethics, and director of Kenan’s Moral Attitudes and Decision-Making Program, is one of two faculty joining the latest Parr Center Forum at UNC-Chapel Hill. The event, which runs from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at UNC’s Caldwell Hall, will seek to answer questions of whether individuals can make a difference when boycotting a harmful practice and whether moral duty to boycott depends on making a difference.

Sinnott-Armstrong will be joined in the debate by Shelly Kagan, the Clark Professor of Philosophy at Yale University.

The forum is co-sponsored by the Kenan Institute and is free and open to the public. For more information about the event, visit the Parr Center for Ethics website.
