Ethics of Society & Ethics of Communication Working Group

This Working Group is concerned with ethical and deontological problems and challenges of the communicators and the communication media. We want to take into consideration how values help to improve the practice of communication in three main areas: information, entertainment and persuasion. We also want to point out the importance of critical reception.
