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. Furthermore, they put focused emphasis on ethical compliance with regard to globalization of professional practices into various cultural settings. The fields represented in the volume include international law, comparative education, East-West relations, engineering and bio-medical ethics, research ethics, and international professionalism in a cross-cultural context.
