AbstractThis volume encourages engineers to think about the short and long term implications of their projects,. The authors discuss the ideas associated ideas associated with the ways in which engineers relate to the communities they work within, and techniques that can be used for engaging with the public. The second volume of this series discusses the thinking processes necessary to create ethical and just decisions in engineering, to understand the implications of these decisions, and to think about ways in which engineers can adapt these decisions to become more socially just in the future. The volume includes a large number of case studies to get readers thinking and discussing the wider impacts of engineering projects on local communities, developing countries, and the environment.
