Report on the 5th EIASM Workshop on Business Ethics

For the fifth time, the biennial EIASM Workshop on Business Ethics
was held in Brussels, Belgium, May 20-21, 2019.

As in previous years, the workshop brought together a diverse set of scholars from three continents in the fields of Business Ethics, Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability, for two days of presentations and engaged discussions.

Importantly, the small size of the workshop is geared towards productive networking, allowing ample time to socialize and build the foundations of lasting relationships and research collaborations. This year there was again a good mix between senior and junior scholars, thereby facilitating a healthy exchange and balance – which is a declared goal of the workshop.

Topics ranged from the role of Business Ethics in times of rising right-wing populism to analyses of sweatshops, exploitation and unjust wages, to gender diversity on boards, and all the way to ethical issues concerning clinical trials in the pharmaceutical industry. The broad array of topics provided a snapshot of the extraordinary breadth of our field and in-depth insight on some specific discussions on selected issues. Beyond the variety of topics, we shared a similar concern for and perspective on the underlying normativity of the issues, which made for highly constructive feedback sessions, in which different cultural and disciplinary backgrounds of the scholars could be leveraged to the fullest extent.

After two intense days, we all left energized and inspired – and are already looking forward to the next time.
