The focus for this meeting began with questions about the potential for conflict that can arise among the various positive goals -- of humanitarian welfare and social and environmental justice -– in contexts of poverty and crisis, where engineers and organizations in which they are employed and volunteer can be found. This potential and the recognition that the field of engineering ethics may not have recognized or addressed it, gave rise to the agenda for this two-day meeting.
The NAE Center for Engineering, Ethics, and Society convened this workshop which was co-sponsored by the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics, and partially supported by the National Science Foundation (Workshop Abstract) and a grant to the Center from NAE member Harry E. Bovay, Jr.
