CALL FOR PAPERS: The Sixth ISBEE World Congress


The International Society of Business, Economics, and Ethics (ISBEE) is the first world-wide professional association of its kind. ISBEE is strongly international in character with members from around the
world. ISBEE developed in response to a felt need to bring together individuals in traditionally distinctive fields – economics, business, law, and philosophy – and different practical areas – human resources, marketing, finance, social, and environmental concerns. The organization offers a global network of persons and organizations and a wide range of professional activities including quadrennial congresses, proceedings, and a web page.

The “Olympics of Business Ethics”

The ISBEE World Congress is often referred to as the “Olympics of Business Ethics” and attracts
leading scholars and practitioners from around the world to examine comparative approaches to
some of the most pressing ethical issues facing businesses and their stakeholders. It has been held
every fourth year from 1996 in a location chosen not only for its practical accessibility but also its
strategic importance to the global economy: 1996 in Tokyo, Japan, 2000 in São Paulo, Brazil, 2004
in Melbourne, Australia, 2008 in Cape Town, South Africa, and 2012 inWarsaw, Poland. In 2016,
from July 13-16, the Sixth ISBEE World Congress will be hosted in Shanghai, China by the
Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences (SASS) and its Center for Business Ethics Studies, and cohosted
by the Antai College of Economics and Management at Shanghai Jiaotong University,
China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) and other organizations.


Scholars and other experts from around the world are invited to submit paper and panel abstracts
that address the theme, “Ethics, Innovation, and Well-Being in Business and the Economy.”

with translation devices available. The abstracts will be peer-reviewed for relevance and rigor.
