    Cobalt mining and responsibility.Teppo Eskelinen, Jawaria Khan & Anna Härri - 2024 - Etikk I Praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 1:65-82.
    _The article discusses the meaning of “ethical” in the context of ethical goods. Terms like “ethical” or “responsible” have assumed new meanings when used to indicate the quality of a product or material. In the article, we analyse the transformed notion of “ethical”, its limits and extensions, using the case of cobalt mining and electronics as an illustrative example. As a non-substitutable material needed by the booming electronics industry and mined in horrendous conditions, the use of cobalt brings forth difficult (...)

    Privacy in a Smart City.Martin Peterson & Barbro Fröding - 2024 - Etikk I Praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 1:49-63.
    _An increasing number of cities around the globe aim to become Smart Cities through the implementation of a range of Information and Communication technologies (ICT), AI applications and cloud-based IoT solutions. While the underlying motivations vary, all such transitions require large amounts of data. In this paper, we articulate and defend two claims about privacy in a Smart City. Our first claim is that some level of systematic data collection and processing is ethically permissible. However, there is an upper limit (...)

    Compromises and Fairness.Juha Räikkä - 2024 - Etikk I Praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 1:21-31.
    _Many philosophers have pointed out that a compromise that is fair in one sense can be unfair in another. In this paper, I will briefly introduce different ways in which compromises can be “fair” and then analyze them. In particular, I compare the importance of what I call (a) split-the-difference fairness and (b) end-state fairness. I will defend split-the-difference fairness against an important objection—that a person’s false belief about her fair share does not change what her fair share actually is. (...)

    Aesthetic-Epistemological Contradiction in the Concept of Water.Alicia Macías Recio - 2024 - Etikk I Praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 1:33-47.
    _The following paper highlights the contradictions that exist in the understanding of water: it is considered a marketable resource over which one can exert power and, at the same time, a common good used by the planet’s species and ecosystems. Based on this, and after an analysis of several widespread ideas, the paper proceeds to describe the paradox in the perception of water as a product of an alienated aesthetics that makes it impossible to experience the after-effects of the Westernised (...)

    Public spirit and compassion fatigue.Trine Lykkegaard Sønderkær - 2024 - Etikk I Praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 1:5-20.
    _This paper discusses the concept of compassion fatigue in light of the importance that political decisions, especially the application of the concept of public spirit, have had on care and nursing in a Danish hospital context during the COVID-19 pandemic. The paper is based on recent research literature in the field as well as the author’s own participatory observation study. The paper suggests that nurses already show a sense of public spirit due to their authorization and professional ethics, but at (...)
