A 10,000 word introduction to issues of ethics and development, written for undergraduate students of international development studies and curious general readers. It is intended to help readers to: 1. Understand development ethics as an essential dimension of international development studies, for explanatory work and self-awareness as well as for evaluation and policy design. 2. Recognize issues for values-sensitive thinking about development: in conceptualizing costs and benefits, considering who bears them, and asking which types of change process are legitimate. 3. Become alert to which issues, identities and interests get considered and which get downgraded or ignored. 4. Connect to relevant tools in development ethics for description, analysis, evaluation, and action.
