BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE

The 2nd Workshop on Business Ethics brings together scholars and practitioners, in order to discuss and develop ideas and research in the field of business ethics and corporate responsibility. It aspires to appeal to a wide international audience and shall provide 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 a platform 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.

Critical perspectives on corporate governance: many of the more recent business scandals have been linked to lacking governance mechanisms in organizations. Relevant questions from an ethical perspective relate, among others, to board composition, integrity and independence of board members, incentive and reward structures or reporting procedures.

Post-crisis business ethics? What are the implications of the global financial crisis for our field? Along with the call for new approaches to conduct business and teach management, do we need to rethink also the role and focus of business ethics? Papers that reflect on new directions in business ethics and corporate responsibility after the financial crisis are of particular interest.

Accounting and business ethics: this year’s workshop is held in collaboration with the Spanish Association of Accounting Scholars. Thus, contributions that address the intersection between business ethics / corporate responsibility and accounting are of particular relevance.
