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.
We would like to take the opportunity to inform you about a new publication:
