AbstractThe article discusses efforts of the International Federation of Social Workers in the development of an international code of ethics, one that employs ideals and terminology from Western philosophy. The author explores how a profession such as social work should respond to the recognition of diversity in the traditions on which a more genuinely international code of ethics might be constructed.
