Is it ethical for government employees to reveal classified information entrusted to them? Is it ethical for government agencies to collect private communication records between U.S. citizens? The UNC Ethics Bowl Team will debate these questions and others raised by the Obama Administration’s efforts to protect national security, and then the audience will be invited to join in.

The students debaters will be Vinayak Balasubramanian, an economics and philosophy major from Poughkeepsie, N.Y.; Colleen Ciszek, a junior philosophy and political science major from Fayetteville; Chloe Freeman, a sophomore exchange student from London who majors in philosophy and religion; and Chris Lambert, a senior philosophy and history major.  The Ethics Team is coached by Jan Boxill, a senior lecturer in philosophy at UNC and director of UNC’s Parr Center for Ethics.  She will moderate the debate.

Come listen to the UNC Ethics Bowl Team debate and join in the discussion afterward!  The Freedom Forum Conference Center is on the third floor of Carroll Hall.
