Moral Compromise

Date: Febuary 10 - 11, 2012

Convenors: Rüdiger Bittner (Bielefeld), Véronique Zanetti (Bielefeld)

While compromise in fact is omnipresent in pluralist societies, we do not have a thorough understanding of it. This holds especially for compromises in which parties yield on what they consider, and keep considering, morally important. The conference was devoted to illuminating this kind of compromise in particular. It approached the phenomenon both from the theoretical side, spelling out the conditions, uses and limits of moral compromise, and from the side of experience, studying a number of relevant examples from current politics, international law and recent history.
