Abstract 

As a founding coeditor of the Journal of Applied Animal Welfare Science and a member of the International Advisory Committee of the Center for Zoo Animal Welfare and Ethics (CZAWE), I welcome this opportunity to publish for the third time (see earlier issues Volume 16, Number 4 [2013] and Volume 18, Supplement [2015]) selected proceedings from the Fourth Global Animal Welfare Congress of the Detroit Zoological Society's CZAWE. I have the honor of presenting a brief overview of the congress, entitled "Zoos and Aquariums as Welfare Centers: Ethical Dimensions and Global Commitment," which was held May 3, 2017, through May 6, 2017.
