Paper Title
Ethics in the Marshall Islands (Challenges in Environment and Education)

The aim of this paper is to briefly introduce and apply different ethical approaches and ethical theories to the environment; and education of the small Pacific nation of the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI). After a brief description of the Marshall Islands I set several ethical values I will deal with throughout the entire paper. The ethical methods and theories I aim to discuss and apply are utilitarianism, altruism, and deontology. I closely focus on the theory of ethics of social consequences within the utilitarian approach that I personally find the most appropriate to work within the set issues with. I try to apply all of the above-mentioned theories to different parts of the daily life of the Marshallese people in the RMI. Firstly, I try to apply ethical theories within different issues of Environmental Ethics in the RMI using different approaches of anthropocentrism, extensionism, and biocentrism. Next, I turn my attention to the area of my research, the education, where I deal with the challenges and ethical values I personally face when delivering the lectures as a faculty of the College of the Marshall Islands. I applied various ethical theories to some critical issues related to a few contemporary concerns I found critical within the relationship between the teacher and student. Finally, I try to offer several solutions from my perspective based on the applied ethical theories on how to mitigate the problems and overcome constantly re-appearing issues we face on a daily basis.
