BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE

The 3rd Workshop on Business Ethics brings together scholars and practitioners to discuss and develop ideas and research in the field of business ethics and corporate responsibility. It reaches out to a diverse international audience and provides a platform both for established as well as emerging and junior researchers. Facilitating an exchange between established scholars and young researchers is of particular concern to this workshop.

All topics in the domain of business ethics and corporate responsibility are welcome, though we encourage participants to adopt an international focus on their research. We welcome both foundational and applied research as well as papers written from purely normative, predominantly conceptual, or empirical angles. Contributions with a critical focus are particularly encouraged.

KEY THEMES

The aim of the workshop is to provide an opportunity for scholars as well as practitioners to present and develop their research ideas. While there are no restrictions in regards to paper topics other than their relevance to business ethics and corporate responsibility, we particularly welcome contributions to the following sub-themes:

Business and human rights: the intersection of business and human rights has been hotly debated in business ethics and beyond especially since the release of the UN Guiding Principles on business and human rights. We particularly encourage contributions on the dissemination and implementation of the Guiding Principles and on the future of the business and human rights debate.

Political role and responsibility of corporations: recent years have heralded a growing interest of scholars in business ethics and corporate responsibility in the political role and activities of companies and the responsibilities that inevitably come with them. Possible perspectives include, but are not limited to: business-government negotiations, lobbying, the interaction between corporations and non-governmental and civil society organizations, corporate influence and impact on public policy.

Responsible consumerism: when surveyed, consumers state that they are aware of environmental, ethical, and social side effects of production and consumption, and that they are willing to change their consumption habits accordingly. However, the number of consumers, who actually do consider environmental and ethical criteria in their purchasing decisions is low. We welcome contributions particularly on the role of the corporation in promoting and fostering responsible consumption.

New theoretical frontiers: We are keen to invoke new (or still marginal) theoretical perspectives, which support us in expanding current conceptualizations of business ethics and corporate responsibility. This could involve, for instance, Alain Badiou’s ethics of truth, Enrique Dussel’s philosophy of liberation, Luc Boltanski’s French pragmatism or Edward Soja’s theory of spatial justice, to name but a few.
