"Should the University employ prisoners?" Ethics Forum Event

All SPS students and staff are invited to this debate on the ethics of prison labour and rehabilitation initiatives on Thursday, December 4th at 13:00.

The University is committed to social responsibility but how does it demonstrate this commitment in the wider community?

Having reflected on the ethics of prison labour in university supply chains, this lunchtime session will go on to examine current rehabilitation initiatives in Scotland and what role universities should play in this process.

Thursday December 4th, 13:00-14:30 - Seminar rooms 1 and 2, Chrystal Macmillan Building
