Handbook of Global Media Ethics (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This handbook is one of the first comprehensive research and teaching tools for the developing area of global

media ethics. The advent of new media that is global in reach and impact has created

the need for a journalism ethics that is global in principles and aims. For

many scholars, teachers and journalists, the existing journalism ethics, e.g.

existing codes of ethics, is too parochial and national. It fails to provide

adequate normative guidance for a media that is digital, global and practiced

by professional and citizen. A global media ethics is being constructed to define what responsible

public journalism means for a new global media era. Currently, scholars write

texts and codes for global media, teach global media ethics, analyse how global

issues should be covered, and gather together at conferences, round tables and

meetings. However, the field lacks an authoritative handbook that presents

the views of leading thinkers on the most important issues for global media

ethics. This handbook is a milestone in the field, and a major

contribution to media ethics.
