Inamori Ethics Prize Events

The Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence at Case Western Reserve University will present the 2015 Inamori Ethics Prize to Martha Nussbaum.

Ceremony and Recipient Lecture

Each year the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence gathers the community to honor an international exemplar of ethical leadership with the Inamori Ethics Prize.

The 2015 ceremony will honor Martha Nussbaum, a philosopher and scholar whose work is frequently at the forefront of global ethical and moral concerns, including championing international women’s rights, marriage equality, animals rights, investment in developing nations, access to liberal education, social tolerance, democracy and global justice.

This annual ceremony offers audiences the opportunity to learn more about the Inamori Center, meet the director and witness the conferring of the Inamori Ethics Prize to the year’s recipient. Presentation of the prize citation and medal is followed by the Inamori Ethics Prize recipient’s public lecture, which covers the recipient’s work and ethical leadership, as well as the challenges of a global society.
