The Ethics of Business, Trade, and Global Governance


Wentworth-by-the-Sea, December 2-3, 2022

We have seen significant economic and political shifts in the last 2+ years with both the Covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war continuing to change the global economic and political order. This time of disruption and shifting economic power is an opportunity to reassess debates about international trade, capital flows and global economic governance. This interdisciplinary conference brings together ethicists, economists, political scientists, international relations scholars, policy experts, and business leaders to examine the political and economic impact of the events of the last two years. Our central goal is to discuss how economic cooperation, international trade and investment can be conducted more ethically, as we move from crisis to a new global order.

Cosponsored by the Center for Ethics in Society, the University of Vienna - Department of Finance, and the University of St. Andrews’ Centre for Responsible Banking and Finance.
