“Global Media Ethics, which is, first and foremost, didactic, provides fodder to identify and discuss crucial issues that promise the growth of global media ethics. These issues go beyond social scientific comparativism and philosophical moral realism. They must be located within the tensions of philosophical particularism and ethical universalism.” (Journal of Mass Media Ethics, 1 January 2014) "This excellent collection extends the emerging genre of global media ethics in several ways, but most prominently by underscoring that while the study of global media ethics is important, there is growing evidence there are few moral universals. Summing Up: Highly recommended." (Choice, 1 October 2013)

Global Media Ethics is a cross-cultural exploration of the conceptual and practical issues facing media ethics in a global world. Focusing on the ethical concepts, principles, and questions in an era of major change, this unique textbook explores the aims and norms that should guide the publication of stories that impact across borders, and which affect a globally-linked, pluralistic world. Through case studies, analysis of emerging practices, and theoretical discussion, a team of leading journalism and communication experts investigate the impact of major global trends on responsible journalism and lead readers to better understand changes in media ethics. Chapters look at how these changes promote or inhibit responsible journalism, how such changes challenge existing standards, and how media ethics can develop to take account of global news media. In light of the fact that media journalism is now, and will increasingly become, multi-media in format and global in its scope and influence, the book argues that global media impact entails global responsibilities: it is therefore critical that media ethics re-thinks its basic notions, standards, and practices from a more cosmopolitan perspective.
“The book pleads convincingly that news media outlets and practitioners should urgently reconsider their practices and norms in a world gone global and digitally convergent. The various contributions broach the topic from completely different perspectives to create a very stimulating and constructive framework to identify and face the new ethical challenges of journalism and the news media.” —Francois Heinderyckx, Université libre de Bruxelles “News that crosses boundaries of culture and geography means rethinking media ethics. The demands of role, audience, digital transmission and an industry under fierce economic pressure require the insightful approach to ethical thinking this volume provides. From theory to practice, this book has something for scholars and professionals alike.” —Lee Wilkins, Editor, Journal of Mass Media Ethics
