Social Economics & Ethics Group
The Social Economics and Ethics (SEE) group brings together IQS researchers who collaborate at the interface of issues related to ethical or socio-economic aspects, as well as as poverty, inequality, education, aporophobia, social exclusion, convergence, and sustainability, among others. The group, composed of economists, philosophers, political scientists, and data scientists, is currently working on three distinct fields of research:
- Aporophobia: conducting conceptual research on its characteristics, studying the relationship between aporophobia and artificial intelligence, working on the development of an implicit association test (IAT) of aporophobia, and conducting aporophobia modelling and simulation.
- The Chinese development model: studying the impact of preferential policies on inequality in China.
- Economic growth and dynamic convergence: researching the evolution of human capital in China and developing indicators on the quality and quantity of education, as well as an analysis of countries’ HDI convergence.
In this environment, SEE collaborates and aspires to collaborate with other groups in the following RD lines:
- Ethical analysis of economic, techno-scientific, and socio-political systems
- The Power in Globalization,
- Human Rights, Political Philosophy, and Religion
- Business Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility
- Cross-Cultural Management and Ethical Business Practice
