How can ethics be communicated in an age of globalisation? Is it possible to overcome cultural differences and agree on common values and principles that cross cultural borders? How does globalisation challenge ethics and established moral traditions? How are human rights justified in a global context? This timely collection of essays responds directly to these questions. An international team of contributors pursue issues in ethics, information and communication that include both the classical question of the universality/contextuality of ethics and values, but also new challenges for communication relating to how values and norms are communicated and shared across cultural and political borders. The essays in this book explore theoretical questions of global ethics and ethical universalism, ethics and communication with reference to specific world views and religions, and the challenge of globalisation for ethical communication in particular social arenas.

MEDIA REVIEWS
How are values and norms communicated in a globalised world? What happens to a value like privacy when Facebook is introduced in Japan? How do social medias challenge shared and divergent values across particular societies? This anthology brings contributions by European and Asian scholars, who question issues like the East/West dichotomy, the need for consensus and problems of epistemic injustice. -- May Thorseth, Professor of Philosophy, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, NTNU
This is an excellent and timely book which addresses one of the most pressing issues in ethics today. The varied backgrounds of the authors provide many valuable insights and this together with the extremely useful introduction make this book essential reading for those working in global ethics. I would also highly recommend it for students in this field. -- John Weckert, Professor of Computer Ethics, Charles Sturt University
An outstanding volume that covers a wide range of issues at the intersection of ethics, communication and globalization. It covers not only many issues in the ethics of (intercultural) communication, but also fundamental issues at the intersection of ethics and culture and applied issues in the communication and teaching of ethics. -- Philip Brey, Professor of Philosophy, University of Twente, The Netherlands
The question at the centre of the book - whether it is possible to find common values and principles across cultures - is one that many actors in politics, business and society must address in their personal and professional endeavours. The answers provided here, though not definitive, point the way to a more considered approach to living in a globalised world. For communicators it is a thoughtful reminder for those whose work travels across borders or appears on a global stage about the need to keep cultural sensitivities in mind and search for a point of connection. * Communication Director *
