|Description:||3rd Annual Australasian Business Ethics Network (ABEN) Conference|
|Location:||Hobart, Tasmania, Lenna Hotel, Australia|
|Subject:||ubmissions are being invited for the 3rd annual ABEN conference on business, ethics and business ethics. This year, we purposefully link the theme to the notion of managing ethics on the edge, to promote awareness of the multitude of philosophical issues that mainstream management research appears to ignore. This raises some interesting questions for ethics teachers and researchers to address. For example: - Given the rhetoric around the importance of ethics in business, are moral considerations and values being authentically included in emerging management practices and strategies or do they remain at the periphery of managers thinking? - Are moral values and competencies becoming part of core learning objectives at all levels of study in University business courses, or do they remain on the periphery? If they are being included, how are they being taught and to what effect? - Are existing moral philosophies serving the needs of moral decision making in business and business education? Are there philosophical alternatives to orthodox approaches that have been hitherto peripheral to the field that may serve teaching and practice in more constructive ways?
