Financial Ethics Workshop
The Financial Ethics Research Group at the University of Gothenburg invites you to an interdisciplinary in-person workshop for international researchers. Welcome to the seminars!
The workshop brings together philosophers and philosophically-minded academics from associated disciplines (e.g. finance, political science, economics, sustainability) working on questions of financial ethics. The topic should be understood broadly to include all kinds of ethical or political issues raised by money and finance – including areas such as sustainable finance, socially responsible investing, the ethics of debt, financial fraud, microfinance and global justice, the politics of central banking, and the philosophy of monetary systems.
