New book. Asun St. Clair og Des Gasper: Development Ethics
Associate professor at the Department of Sociology, Asuncion Lera St. Clair, has together with Professor Des Gasper edited the book “Development Ethics”. This book is a part of the series "The International Library of Essays in Public and Professional Ethics".
The traditional definition of development ethics considers the 'ethical and value questions posed by development theory, planning and practice' (Goulet 1977: 5). The field parallels the traditional question of ethics 'How ought one to live as an individual?' by asking in addition 'How ought a society exist and move into the future?' This interdisciplinary field is well represented by a substantial collection of previously-published articles and papers. The volume illustrates a wide range of academic and practitioner writings on the theories and concepts of development ethics as well as ethical development policy and practice
