Outstanding Professional Ethics Unit at Keele University to be shut down?

Apparently, as a way of handling the cuts currently burdening many UK universities, Keele University plans to shut down its outstanding and internationally highly regarded Centre for Professional Ethics (PEAK). The full story is at the BMJ Medical Ethics blog, where you also can find instructions on how to add your weight to a quickly building storm of protests from both the UK and the international community of applied ethics research.

There is now also a PEAK support group on Facebook.
