ISBEE is grateful for the efforts made by three international teams from Chile, China, and Spain for their proposals to host ISBEE's 2016 World Congress. We are pleased to announce that the Executive Committee has selected Shanghai, China as the 2016 host. More information will be available about ISBEE's 2016 World Congress as the date approaches. We look forward to seeing you in Shanghai for the next "Olympics of Business Ethics"!
The International Society of Business, Economics, and Ethics (ISBEE) is the first world-wide professional association to focus exclusively on the study of business, economics, and ethics. Its professional orientation involves people not only with academic competencies but also with practical competencies in responsible management positions (such as vice-presidents and issue managers) and entrepreneurs of medium-size and small companies. Individual membership consists of academicians, managers of business firms and of not-for-profit organizations, and others who have an interest in business ethics. Organizational membership includes companies and other organizations. 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. What characterizes these individuals is their common interest in the ethical dimension of economic, social, and environmental issues that affect domestic and global firms and hence individuals and broader structures as well. The organization offers a global network of persons and organizations and a wide range of professional activities including quadrennial congresses, proceedings, and web page.
