Abstract and Keywords

After empirically demonstrating that the well-being of psychology is tied to fundamental economic and political conditions, I illustrate how psychological ethics codes are socially situated by sampling from the codes or regulatory laws of selected countries that have transitioned or are transitioning from communism to free-market democracy, military dictatorship to representative government, economically and politically divided to unified, internationally isolated to globally interconnected, monarchy to theocracy, racially segregated to pluralistic, bicultural to multicultural, and at peace to wartime status. I also examine how the Meta-Code of Ethics reflects the complex, multidimensional integration of Europe. I conclude by identifying features common to the ethics codes of the above countries in transition and compare them to the Universal Declaration of Ethical Principles for Psychologists.

Keywords: economic and political systems, social transition, ethics codes
