Co-Existing in a Globalized World: Key Themes in Inter-Professional Ethics brings together, and engages with, the scholarly work accomplished individually under the banner of professional ethics in various fields. The overarching theme of the volume is that globalization inevitably pairs professionals from distinct fields as co-workers. This necessitates serious reflection on how diverse fields can co-exist and achieve superior results through combining best practices from each. The authors are leading scholars and practitioners who have diverse national and distinguished professional backgrounds. These authors particularly focus on ethical concerns emerging from the inherent symbiotic relationship between cultural boundaries, professions and globalization.

Colleen Murphy, Paolo Gardoni, Hassan Bashir, Charles E. Harris Jr. and Eyad Masad (editors)

2015, Springer, USA

The overarching purpose of the proposed edited volume is to identify, discuss and begin to address the wide array of ethical issues that have emerged for engineers due to the rise of a global economy. To date, there has been no systematic treatment of the particular challenges globalization poses for engineering ethical standards and education. This volume concentrates on precisely this challenge. Scholars and practitioners from diverse national and professional backgrounds discuss the ethical issues emerging from the inherent symbiotic relationship between the engineering profession and globalization. Through their discussions, a deeper and more complete understanding of the precise ways in which globalization impacts the formulation and justification of ethical standards in engineering as well as the curriculum and pedagogy of engineering ethics education emerges.
