Skip to 0 minutes and 42 seconds Hello, I’m Doctor Deane-Peter Baker. I have the privilege of teaching here at UNSW Canberra. As you can see, it’s not your average university. UNSW Canberra works in close partnership with the Australian Defence Force Academy to educate future officers of Australia’s Army, Navy, and Air Force, as well as exchange cadets and midshipmen from around the world. An essential part of the curriculum here is teaching these future military officers about ethics for the military profession. That’s a responsibility that my colleagues and I take very seriously. In fact, we can honestly say that we have one of the strongest programmes in military ethics anywhere in the world.
Skip to 1 minute and 25 seconds We work hard at giving our students conceptual tools that can help them deal with challenging ethical situations. We also help them think through issues that are particular to the military profession. If those are issues that are of interest or professional relevance to you, then join me. But we won’t be confined to a classroom like this. I’m inviting you to join me on a trip that will take us literally around the world as we explore key issues of military ethics. So let’s go.
