The present conference wishes to expand the understanding of compromise in its cultural, and transnational dimension, in order to test the relevance of a cultural or global approach to compromise. To do so, it will bring together the contributions of  15 European, American and Asian Philosophers.

The main questions addressed by the conference are: what are the normative assumptions and solutions proposed to develop morally right or wrong compromise typologies? Can we develop an ethics of compromise that is universal or to what extent compromise vary depending on the socio-cultural history of a country? How is culture relevant in shaping types and norms of compromise?
