So while Ethics and Compliance might sound like different things, they’re actually closely aligned. Think about how you’ve reacted to the COVID-19 rules imposed in your country. Of course, you’ve diligently followed the rules at all times. But you’ve also thought about whether you think those rules are proportionate and whether you trust the authority imposing them. And, maybe, just maybe, when you’ve bent the rules, you’ve found yourself justifying it. If so, that justification is highly likely to contain an ethical element. Because when it comes to complying with rules, ethics is never far away from our minds.
Good news then, for the organisers of ECEC 2021, who can rest assured that there’s a good reason for covering both topics.
