Call for Proposals: The Ethics of Business, Trade, and Global Governance
The Saint Anselm College Center for Ethics in Society, in cooperation with the Department of Finance—University of Vienna and the University of St. Andrews Centre for Responsible Banking & Finance, announces a call for proposals for a conference on the economics, ethics, and governance of global commerce. This hybrid conference will take place December 3-4, 2021, at the Wentworth by the Sea Grand Hotel, New Castle, N.H. The Plenary Speaker will be Daniel W. Drezner from Tufts University.
The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the global economy. Because this has been a time of disruption and shifting economic power, it is an opportunity to reassess ethical and governance questions and debates about international trade and capital flows that will be essential to address in the post-COVID-19 recovery period. The goal of this interdisciplinary conference is to bring together ethicists, economists, political scientists, international relations scholars, policy experts, and business leaders to examine not only the political and economic impact of globalization but also how international trade and investment can be conducted more ethically as we move towards a “new normal” in a post-pandemic global context.
Suggested topics or questions that a proposal could address include:
