Ethics Training Beyond the Classroom
There is a clear linkage between ethical behaviour within armed forces and their conduct on operations. Fostering ethical awareness and moral decision-making in military personnel is a proven way of reducing harm and suffering in conflict situations, and may have profound links to the reduction of incidents of PTSD and moral injury, but there is a lack of quality pedagogic tools for supporting development in this key area and normalising the everyday discussion of ethical considerations.
