This introductory text provides a summary of the Archaeo-Ethics Conference held in Paris on May 25-26 2018. It also introduces the texts in this special issue devoted to ethics in archaeology, proceedings of the Conference. The texts have been separated into five parts:"What collaborations between archaeologists and local populations?", "(Re-)appropriation or instrumentalization of archaeological research?",“What collaborations between professional archaeologists and heritage enthusiasts (from qualified amateurs to looters)?”, "Human remains, archaeological remains unlike any other", and "Archaeology in the face of a management imperative: what consequences for our practice?". Two transversal papers serve as an introduction and conclusion to the volume, which starts with this editorial and is closed with a conclusion by the conference organizers.
