Digitization and Business Ethics

Call for Papers

Do, 15.02.18

The Peter Loescher Chair of Business Ethics and Global Governance at the Technical University of Munich and the research group Ethics of Digitization organize an international conference on Digitization and Business Ethics. The conference will be held at the Technical University of Munich from 20–21 September 2018.

Digitization is changing all aspects of human life and has become a prominent topic across disciplines. Due to the complexity of the issues of digitization, they need to be addressed in a transdisciplinary way. This conference focuses specifically on questions of business ethics linked to digitization issues. Digitization is a major topic in economics and business management, political sciences, engineering, medicine and ethics. Business ethics needs to undertake a balanced assessment of the opportunities, risks and social norms in a world increasingly shaped by digital technologies.
