Communication ethics (CE) is a discipline that supports communication practitioners by offering tools and analyses for the understanding of ethical issues. Without question the speed of change in the dynamic information environment presents new challenges, especially for communication practitioners.

Ethics used to be a specialist subject situated within schools of philosophy. Today it is viewed as a language and systematic thought process available to everyone. It encompasses issues of care and trust, social responsibility and environmental concern and identifies the values necessary to balance the demands of performance today with responsibilities for tomorrow.

For busy professionals, CE is a dynamic learning and teaching process that encourages analysis and engagement with many constituencies, enhancing relationships through critical-creative thinking. It can be used to improve organisation performance as well as to protect individual well-being.
