PY Neron and Sandrine Blanc: Ethics of corporations.
15.30-17.00 (Stijlkamer Janskerkhof (0.06), JKH 13)

Corporations, their particular form of governance and work relations have been the subject of much contemporary scrutiny. Many have note the deleterious impact of shareholder governance, hierarchies and managerial authority on employees’ work and social lives. During this colloquium, we will explore and discuss the ambition and resources of two contemporary theories of justice, liberal egalitarian and relational egalitarian, for addressing the pressing issue raised by contemporary corporate governance and managerial practices. A brief summary of the main ideas of each approach will be given — building notably on arguments from the background readings — and further ideas presented regarding where discussions could usefully be heading to.
