Meeting of some of the Pool of Experts, October 2022

What the Pool of Experts is about and how it works

The Globethics Pool of Experts understands itself as a collaborative community of practice for expert exchange, co-creation, together with the Globethics management, on cutting-edge ethical topics as related to the Globethics strategic priorities. Membership of the Globethics Pool of Experts is pro bono.

  • Members of the Pool of Experts are convened to join one of the four working groups in a dedicated space, created on the Globethics Academy online platform, for the purpose of continuous reflection, mutual intellectual stimulation and work on existing projects that members would like to share and work on with other experts (e.g. discussion papers, research initiatives).
  • Pool of Experts members may be solicited to represent the organisation at regional and international events.
  • In addition, they also may be invited to join Globethics projects and activities as subject matter experts.
  • All Pool of Experts members are convened once per calendar year to an annual round table to facilitate an exchange on ongoing developments and trends.

  • Interest in international, cross-cultural and interregional experience, engagement and relationships;
