Dr. Jessica Aquino, December 2, at 8 pm at Icelandic Seal Center
The concept of ethics of care has moved from its inception as a care between two people to a much broader feminist moral philosophy and public ethics. Ethics of care is about a community that supports us and whom we support. Care is an ongoing process that transcends the idea of environmental stewardship to understand humans as members of a “living web”. Using the ethics of care approach this presentation aims to develop an analytical framework for community development practices in sustainable tourism development. It will answer the research question, what kind of insight does the ethics of care approach reveal about community development practices within sustainable tourism at the Icelandic Seal Center?
The presentation concludes with a discussion about future work.
