Abstract (Swedish)
Ethical trends across the Western hemisphere of Global Civil Society (GCS) may equal ethics to be out of date, unless it is globalized in, an ethically justifiable manner, which in this paper is called ”ethicalization”.

Ethical consistency will here be detected by scrutinizing organizational value foundations of Western CSOs, which reveals whether the contemporary course of Western CSOs coincide... (More)
Ethical trends across the Western hemisphere of Global Civil Society (GCS) may equal ethics to be out of date, unless it is globalized in, an ethically justifiable manner, which in this paper is called ”ethicalization”. Whether the ethical current can catch momentum with globalizations speed of time, concurrently maintaining consistency is a challenge faced by Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), as actors in GCS. The aim of this paper is to question a Western idea of globally applicable values and stimulate an ethically consistent mindset, in the shaping of GCS. Ethical consistency will here be detected by scrutinizing organizational value foundations of Western CSOs, which reveals whether the contemporary course of Western CSOs coincide with its ontological values in a global context. The paradigm’s reflection on a normative ideal of GCS, exceeding the Western discourse, reveals whether Western CSOs paradigm of global values, is in its essence globally valid. The analysis suggests a paradigm shift in CSOs future focus on uniting differences, instead of levelling out inequalities. The organizations’ insufficient acknowledgement of cultural relativisms complexity will be met by a constructive debate of compatible ethical elements in the future of GCS. (Less)
