Ethics and Capitalism

Call for Papers

Theme: Ethics and Capitalism
Type: 26th International Vincentian Business Ethics Conference
(IVBEC) 2019
Institution: School of Theology, Philosophy, and Music, Institute of
Ethics and Business School, Dublin City University (DCU)
Location: Dublin (Ireland)
Date: 24.–26.10.2019
Deadline: 2.4.2019

Capitalism, as an economic system, continues to spark many ethical,
political, economic, social and cultural debates. It is a system that
is not solely confined to economics but has ramifications for many
aspects of democratic and family life around the world. However, the
connection between economic self-interest and the benefit of all
remains a perennial issue. As a subject, capitalism invites an
interdisciplinary approach such as political theory, social theory,
theology, philosophy as well as ethics.

At this conference, there will be keynote addresses and parallel oral
presentation sessions to generate debate and discussion amongst
conference participants on business ethics in general and on the
theme of capitalism in particular. We hope that this conference will
provide an opportunity to bring together scholars and practitioners
from around the world to take time to reflect on capitalism as an
economic system from a business ethics perspective. The language for
the conference will be English.

We encourage proposals from academics, business professionals and
young scholars. Anyone wishing to present a paper at one of the
parallel sessions, should submit an abstract of 500  words max in a
WORD document format via email to ivbec2019(at) by April 2nd, 2019.

For more details regarding the submission process and formatting, please see here:
