The theme of the 26th IVBEC 2019 conference is Ethics and Capitalism.
Capitalism, as an economic system, continues to spark many ethical, political, economic, social and cultural debates. It is a system that is not solely confined to economics but has ramifications for many aspects of democratic and family life around the world. However, the connection between economic self-interest and the benefit of all remains a perennial issue. As a subject, capitalism invites an interdisciplinary approach such as political theory, social theory, theology, philosophy as well as ethics.
At this conference, there will be keynote addresses and parallel oral presentation sessions to generate debate and discussion amongst conference participants on business ethics in general and on the theme of capitalism in particular. We hope that this conference will provide an opportunity to bring together scholars and practitioners from around the world to take time to reflect on capitalism as an economic system from a business ethics perspective. The language for the conference will be English.
