Join UCF's Center for Ethics for a conversation with author Jonathan H. Marks about his book, The Perils of Partnership, and about the ethics of public/private partnerships.
Jonathan H. Marks is director of the Bioethics Program at Pennsylvania State University, and affiliate faculty in law, philosophy, public policy, and international affairs. He is also a barrister and academic member of Matrix Chambers, London and Geneva. His new book, The Perils of Partnership: Industry Influence, Institutional Integrity, and Public Health (Oxford University Press, 2019), is the product of research Marks conducted while he was a visiting fellow at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard. The book also expands on the author’s popular TED talk, “In Praise of Conflict.” Whether speaking or writing about torture, fracking, obesity, or the opioid crisis, Marks focuses on the intersections of ethics, law, and policy—with a special interest in institutional integrity and corruption. He has written op-eds for the New York Times, The Times (London), the LA Times, The Conversation and the Harvard Ethics Blog.
This event is hosted by the UCF Center for Ethics, the Office of Research and the College of Arts & Humanities.
