Peter Löscher Chair of Business Ethics and Global Governance
The Peter Löscher Chair of Business Ethics and Global Governance explores the conditions for ethical behavior in a globalized and pluralistic world. In this sense, our research is dedicated to the socio-economic order framework and the institutional environment in which individuals interact. This includes the analysis of incentives, as well as the examination of ethical categories which fit into our contemporary world. The goal of our research is to develop institutional design recommendations and give orientation to actors in business, politics and society who face ethical challenges.

Call for Abstracts
The Peter Loescher Chair of Business Ethics and Global Governance at the Technical University of Munich and the research group “Ethics of Digitization” organize an international conference on “Digitization and Business Ethics“. The conference will be held at the Technical University of Munich from 20 – 21 September 2018.
Digitization is changing all aspects of human life and has become a prominent topic across disciplines. Due to the complexity of the issues of digitization, they need to be addressed in a transdisciplinary way. This conference focuses specifically on questions of business ethics linked to digitization issues. Digitization is a major topic in economics and business management, political sciences, engineering, medicine and ethics. Business ethics needs to undertake a balanced assessment of the opportunities, risks and social norms in a world increasingly shaped by digital technologies.
