› 26th International Vincentian Business Ethics Conference (IVBEC) 2019
Call for Papers
Institution: School of Theology, Philosophy, and Music, Institute of Ethics and Business School, Dublin City University (DCU)
Location: Dublin (Ireland)
Theme: 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.
We encourage proposals from academics, business professionals and young scholars. Anyone wishing to present a paper at one of the parallel sessions, should submit an abstract of 500 words max in a WORD document format via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 2nd, 2019.
For more details regarding the submission process and formatting, please see here:
