The chapter opens with an introduction to ethics, including the definition of key ethical concepts used in later discussion. This is followed by a brief summary of the problem that this chapter, as one part of the edited collection, seeks to address: how to achieve and maintain food security in Australia. Essential ethical dimensions of the framing of this problem are then highlighted: the development of national strategies for food security can only be ethical if it is informed by, and incorporates an appropriate response to, Australia's global justice and global environmental obligations. Finally, key ethical dimensions of some proposed strategies for achieving and maintaining food security in Australia are identified and discussed.
