The ethics of care has developed substantially since its early articulation by Gilligan as distinct from justice ethics. Much of its power derives from its capacity to offer insights into care as both personal and political, and to work with both philosophical as well as empirical social science understandings of the meaning of care. Thus recent formulations enable us to think care and justice together, rather than suggesting that one or the other should determine policy and practice. The ethics of care has particular significance as a critical perspective and basis for transformation in the light of the failures of neo-liberalism and evidence of the crisis in care. It also provides a necessary way of approaching care as an international and global issue.
