Ethics Policy Committee

EthicsCodeBrandingweb2
 
 
The Ethics Policy Committee (EPC) was established by Council in June 2012 with a remit to oversee both the Ethics Code and the School’s wider ethical framework. This includes an Ethics (Grants and Donations) Panel| which assesses whether the sources of funding coming in to the School via prospective grants or donations referred to it are ethically acceptable. Council have also approved new procedures for ethical screening of grants and donations.

|The EPC forms a central component in the School’s new structures for supporting the Code and related procedures. Where the Ethics (Grants and Donations) Panel are unable to take a unanimous decision on a specific case, it is referred to the EPC for decision; only in exceptional circumstances will the issue be referred on to Council|.
 
The EPC also has a remit to consider ethical issues which might have policy implications for the School, as well an oversight and monitoring role over the Ethics Code itself.

Message from the Chair

The establishment of the School’s first Ethics Code and creation of an Ethics Policy Committee mark a new and welcome chapter for the LSE. I accepted the position of Chair in the firm belief that through this Committee, we have an excellent opportunity to make sure that we all take personal responsibility for ethical matters and placing ethics at the very heart of decision-making.

The Committee will have a busy workload over the coming months, and has already begun the important task of considering cases referred to it for decision. During the course of the year, the Committee will also monitor the progress being made in embedding the Ethics Code into the fabric of LSE life. I believe that I speak for all members when I say that we are both honoured and excited to be involved in such important work, and I look forward to keeping you informed of progress over the course of the coming year.

The Honourable Dame Linda Dobbs DBE
Chair of the Ethics Policy Committee
