Code of Ethics of the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences

COMPLETE DOCUMENT

The Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences, is, in virtue of being one of the institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences, governed by legislation of the Czech Republic and other measures and directives which apply to the Czech Academy of Sciences and its parts, in particular Act no. 283/1992 Coll. on the Czech Academy of Sciences, Act no. 341/2005 Coll. on public research institutions,  Statutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences, and the Code of Ethics for Researchers of the Czech Academy of Sciences. The Code of Ethics of the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences follows up on these norms and further develops them. It defines a set of ethical norms which are mandatory for the Institute of Philosophy and its employees. The Institute of Philosophy as an employer takes it upon itself to create working conditions that will support implementation and realisation of this Code of Ethics.

The Code of Ethics takes three sources as its starting points: (I) general ethical norms; (II) demands linked to the specific nature of research activities; (III) responsibility of a public research institution towards the general public.
