Critical advances in international perspective

Over the last 20 years there has been a flourishing of work on feminist care ethics. This collection makes a unique contribution to this body of work. The international contributors demonstrate the significance of care ethics as a transformative way of thinking across diverse geographical, policy and interpersonal contexts. From Tronto’s analysis of global responsibilities, to Fudge Schormans’ re-imagining of care from the perspective of people with learning disabilities, chapters highlight the necessity of thinking about the ethics of care to achieve justice and well-being within policies and practice. This book will be essential reading for all those seeking such outcomes.

The purpose of this chapter is to introduce the ethics of care, highlight key debates, developments and advances in the literature on

as we carry out our work and, if we care about this, we need to ensure that what we do leaves things a bit better than when we started. We think that the ethics of care offers such a framework ( Gilligan, 1993 ; Tronto, 1993 , 2013 ). So, this book is also about care. What do we care about and why? What does it mean to care about something and to spend part of our lives exploring those things we care about through research? How important is it to practice care in the research we do, in the way we relate to those we research with? How can we carefully try to use

Introduction The earliest critiques of the idea of an ‘ethic of care’ focused on its alleged essentialism. In 1988, Elizabeth Spelman (1988) argued that Carol Gilligan’s entire theory about ‘women’s moral voice’ was based on research conducted with white, heterosexual, middle-class women in the US, and thus ignored the crucial role of race and class in the psychology of morality. A second, related charge was levelled not at Gilligan per se, but at the early ethics of care literature that was influenced by her work. On this view, care ethics were ‘anti
