Military personnel from 11 countries of the American continent reinforced their knowledge in professional military ethics.
At Canton Norte in Bogotá, a military staff from Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, Paraguay, Canada, Jamaica, Salvador, Costa Rica, Honduras and Salvador took the Comprehensive Ethics Training Course for eight days, with the support from the Government of Canada.
During the process, the staff learned about professional military ethics, what moral principles are, what Humanitarian Law and humanitarian intervention mean, among other topics. They also addressed issues such as the three classical moral philosophies, the tradition of just war, cybernetics or the art of governing ethically within the system, the legitimacy of the use of force, contemporary ethical dilemmas and the relationship between civil society and the Armed Forces.
Finally, they had classes dedicated to practical exercises based on different scenarios, readings, and also could watch and analyze the film Eye in the Sky, which allowed to highlight some subjects addressed during the course.
