JME and JME Trust
Journal of Moral Education
The JME was founded in 1971. Its breadth of concern is highlighted by its sub-title * Development * Ethics * Society. It provides a unique interdisciplinary forum for the discussion and analysis of moral education and development throughout the lifespan. It encourages submissions across the human sciences and humanities that use a range of methodological approaches and address aspects of moral reasoning, moral emotions, motivation and moral action in various contexts (e.g., cultural, gender, family, schooling, community, leisure, work) and roles (e.g., parent, teacher, student, civic, professional).

PROMOTIONAL ACTIVITIES OF THE JME TRUST
The JME trustees also engages in other initiatives to promote Moral Education globally.
This portal is designed to provide ready access to all aspects of moral education throughout the world. Its continuing strength depends upon the readiness of its users to take part in checking content and feeding in additional material and links. The trustees understand it to be a collaborative development, academically independent and passionately impartial. They acknowledge its imperfections and extend an open invitation to others to improve and enrich it.
Research and Development
In the years ahead, from its quite limited resources, the Trust will continue to support research and development in Moral Education as an international priority area.
An Inaugural JMET Project was advertised in 2014, encouraging submissions from across the human sciences and humanities that address aspects of moral development, moral education, moral reasoning, moral emotions, motivation and moral action in various contexts and roles. The successful proposal came from Dr Sharlene Schwartz; it was completed by the end of 2016. Its focus was on how students in four different African countries understand the notion of privilege, locate themselves with regard to past or current injustices, and respond to the notion of 'making restitution' as an appropriate response. For a summary report + details of the book arising from the project can be found at http://www.hsrc.ac.za/en/research-data/view/9258.
In 2016 a collaborate scholarship scheme with the British Academy was launched. The awards are for up to £10,000 and tenable for up to 2 years. The scheme is jointly funded, it supports research in the fields of moral education, moral psychology, moral philosophy and ethics, civics and citizenship education and subjects bearing on our understanding of how human beings engage or disengage with moral life. A succession of small scale projects have been funded collaboratively in this way as follows:
James McAllister Discussion and Moral Education
Marianne Bruins The Effect of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families on Children’s
David Lundie The Influence of Securitization on Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural
Development in England’s Schools.
Alpha Parma Black, Asian and White Minority Ethnic Offending: Unravelling the Mechanisms at the Level of Agency, Structure and Culture.
Suraj Lakhani ‘Prevent Duty’: Understanding the Effects of Counter-Terrorism Policy within
Secondary and Further Education Institutions.
Sylvia Terbach Moral behaviour in Immersive Virtual Reality.
Kathryn Wheeler Educating Young People as Sustainable Citizen-consumers.
Further awards are planned for succeeding years. For details: BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grants http://www.britac.ac.uk/node/3543
An intensive Colloquium on the Future Development of Moral Education was held in Rome in September 2019. The fruits of its deliberations will appear as a Special Issue of the JME
