Applied ethics is a growing interdisciplinary field that studies ethical issues in areas such as politics, medicine, research, technology, and different forms of professional ethics. Questions such as global justice, ethical implications of new technologies in healthcare and environmental responsibility for future generations are some of the issues that applied ethics deals with. The subject has its disciplinary basis in moral philosophy and ethics, and requires knowledge and expertise in the various fields of application.
