A colloquium on the theme of Ethics in Crisis takes place at Castlecoote House, near Roscommon town, on Wednesday.
A third speaker is aid worker Sharon Commins, who will speak on the subject of Ethics in a Troubled World.
This inaugural colloquium – there are plans for it to become an annual event – is a response to the sense of confusion that exists about many of the most important ethical issues and controversies of the times, the organisers say.
It is intended to bring into the open questions that must be addressed.
