Michigan State University has many faculty and graduate students working in the exciting field of ethics and development. They address collaboratively and in a philosophically sophisticated manner the difficult ethical issues that arise in the course of social, economic, political, and cultural development within an increasingly inter-connected global context. This specialization was first developed and is currently housed by the department of philosophy at MSU.

"Human development, as an approach, is concerned with what I take to be the basic development idea: namely, advancing the richness of human life, rather than the richness of the economy in which human beings live, which is only a part of it. That is, I think, the basic focus of the human development approach." - Amartya Sen
