TABEC is a small invitation-only conference that brings together some of the finest business ethics scholars from North America and Europe to share their ideas on some of the pressing issues in business ethics of our times. TABEC meets every two years and the location alternates between venues in Europe and North America. The 2018 conference was hosted by the Institute for Ethical Leadership (IEL) at the Rutgers Business School. In 2016 TABEC met at University of St. Gallen’s Institut für Wirtschaftsethik (IWE).
The goal of the conference is to encourage dialogue among North American and European scholars in business ethics on topics of current interest and debate in a small, informal, but highly efficient setting.
Traditionally, we invited 10 leading scholars from each side of the Atlantic. In order to better
represent young scholars and to bring in fresh ideas, this year we will invite additional European early career scholars and/or PhD students.
The conference theme is “The Political Responsibility of Business”.
