The Chair of Theological Ethics focuses on the research and teaching of moral theology and social ethics (in particular via the Institute of Social Ethics ISE, which falls under the Chair of Theological Ethics). This includes scholarly reflection on issues at an individual ethical level (moral theology) on the one hand and on ethical topics at a social level (social ethics) on the other, as well as the interaction between both levels. This scientific basis has enabled the Chair of Theological Ethics to become a dialogue partner for politics, business, civil society on a local, regional, national, and international level.
