Written by Professor of public policy and government at the Blavatnik School of Government and fellow at Nuffield College at University of Oxford, Bo Rothstein, and Professor em. of Psychosocial Medicine at Karolinska Institutet (Stockholm), Lennart Levi, the article brings attention to the necessity of integrating ethical competence in Higher Education.
