This module links the ethical evaluation of blockchain technologies with contemporary approaches in applied ethics that focus on responsible research and innovation. It provides an overview of the current state of the art of these approaches and discusses their possible applications in the context of blockchain technologies. Furthermore, it zooms in on approaches used in recent literature that investigate the social and ethical impacts of blockchain technology. After completing this module, participants will have: a basic understanding of contemporary approaches in applied ethics dealing with emerging technologies such as blockchain technologies, an understanding of some contemporary, "state of the art" discussions on the ethical and social impacts of blockchain technologies.
