We are delighted to announce the First BUCHAREST CONFERENCE IN APPLIED ETHICS ’08, which will be held at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Bucharest, on October 30/31, 2008. This edition is hosted by the Research Centre in Applied Ethics and Smart Solutions & Support, Romania. Argument In a general tendency of adopting more and more ethics and compliance policies, the greatest fear of business-men is for an overwhelming corporate bureaucracy and decreasing decision-making role of company boards and CEOs. The current challenges for businesses also come in conjunction with a troubled world economy and a very aggressive public opinion favoring environmental and social commitment of organizations. This year topic, “Ethical Management, Corporate Strategy, and Sustainable Development”, is meant to bring together both theorists and practicians interested in Business Ethics, Corporate Governance, Corporate Strategy, Sustainable Development, Organizational Culture, etc., and discuss the current and future challenges for companies from all over the world. The two-day conference will be a debate platform for anyone interested in exploring how sustainable development is linked to ethical management and how can social responsibility help building stronger organizations and business communities.
