|Abstract||Scholars have developed many theories of international strategy and many theories of international ethics. Separating strategyand ethics in this way, though, perpetuates a perception that profit and ethics are mutually exclusive. Accordingly, I offer a frameworkthat links international strategy and international ethics. I suggest that at an abstract level the strategic concepts of integration and responsiveness and the ethical concepts of justice and caring are concerned with the same theoretical quandaries. Therefore, in anysituation there are behaviors that are both integrative and just and/or both responsive and caring, and these behaviors are both strategic and ethical. To demonstrate the potential descriptive and prescriptive value of the framework, I descend the ladders of abstraction associated with these concepts and apply the framework to two business situations|
