Deadline for Call for Papers Extended – 22nd Annual International Vincentian Business Ethics Conference (IVBEC)

22nd Annual International Vincentian Business Ethics Conference (IVBEC) 

UN Global Compact and UN PRME:

What We Practice and What We Teach in Business Ethics

St. John’s University, New York will host the International Vincentian Business Ethics Conference in 2015, on 22-24 October in New York City, attracting leading academics to examine, discuss and develop the role of Business Ethics in economic, political, corporate and social life today. 

The theme of the IVBEC 2015 conference, UN Global Compact and UN PRME: What we Practice and What We Teach in Business Ethics, addresses topics in all areas of business and professional ethics. Keynote addresses by UN and business leaders, panel sessions, academic paper sessions and paper development workshops will be used to spur discussion amongst conference participants on ethics and ethical decision making in business.

As the United Nations works toward a September 2015 deadline to establish post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals, the theme of the conference will focus on how business education and business practices align to foster responsible management of organisations in a sustainable future. Proposals are encouraged that relate to the intersection of Business Ethics and the role that the UN Global Compact and the UN Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) play in sustainable and inclusive development within a global context.  

In addition to the general theme for the keynote and plenary sessions, the conference is organised in broad topical areas based on proposed submissions.

The conference is looking for submissions from business professionals, academics and young scholars who have an interest in and commitment to the study and discussion of business and professional ethics. See full details on the Call for Proposals here. For further details on the conference itself, see their event page here.
