Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics (CAPPE)

The Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics (CAPPE) is an Australian Research Council Special Research Centre. CAPPE commenced operations in 2000 and is the world’s largest concentration of applied philosophers. Spanning three of Australia’s most prestigious universities, its purpose is to connect rigorous philosophical thinking with policy input, community discussion, and professional aims.

CAPPE aims to assist members of the community to make more ethically informed choices by making available the considerable resources of the rich tradition in philosophical theory, as well as other information, such as empirical research and the statement of fundamental human rights in international instruments of human rights.

CAPPE aims to combine frontier research in social and applied philosophy with close attention to the concrete problems and requirements of practitioners in the public sphere.
