8th Annual Australasian Business Ethics Network (ABEN) Conference 2018
9-11 December 2018
Doctoral workshop: 9th December 2018
The theme for this year's conference is Ethics and Sustainability in the Age of Disruption. A range of technological and organisational changes in recent years have significantly disrupted, and continue to disrupt existing ways of doing business around the world. We consider the implications that such disruption has on efforts to promote ethics and sustainability within the business sphere, as well as how the imperatives of ethics and sustainability can themselves disrupt existing business practices.
