Over the last twenty years, research on feminist care ethics has flourished, and this collection makes a unique contribution to that body of work. Drawing on a wealth of practical experience across eight different disciplinary fields, the international contributors demonstrate the significance of care ethics as a transformative way of thinking across diverse geographical, political, and interpersonal contexts. From an analysis of global responsibilities to a reimagining of care from the perspective of people with learning disabilities, each chapter highlights the necessity of thinking about the ethics of care within policies and practice.
