Various achievements of Australia in the field of applied ethics from the 1980s to 2016 are outlined. The review covers academic scholarship, research and teaching; the ethics of business and actions to build ethics into the structures of enterprises. This follows the 3-fold categorization developed by De George (2012). A brief account of the formation and history of the Australian Association for Professional and Applied Ethics is included, as is a selection of scandals involving Australian organisations. Australia is shown to have made a significant contribution to the academic discipline of applied ethics and to have been aware of its position, distant from the English-speaking West and in the midst of nations of the global south.
To assess the contribution of Australian activity in the field of applied ethics in the context of the global south and of Australia’s position in the Southern hemisphere, a history of Australian activity in applied ethics has been provided, using the threefold categorisation of De George to assemble the material. The contributions by Australian individuals and organisations to applied ethics in the period from the 1980s to 2016, outlined above, show both an engagement with the global south and a contribution at a global level.
Evidence has been provided to show that Australian academics have contributed to the global discipline and have been hosts to and guests of those from the global south. Business in Australia has had its share of scandals and the community has responded by revising its opinions of the honesty and ethics of particular professions. The community, including professional associations, academics and elected representatives, have been engaged in the process of enhancing ethical regimes in business.
