TABEC

Every two years the “TransAtlantic Business Ethics Conference” (TABEC) brings together a selected number of leading scholars in business ethics from both sides of the Atlantic to discuss new approaches and new topics in the field of business ethics. These meetings aim to (1) encourage dialogue between North American and European business ethics scholars on topics of current interest, (2) create an ongoing framework to continue the TABEC conferences on a biennial basis, and (3) publish selected papers presented at the conference.

TABEC was founded by Laszlo Zsolnai and George Brenkert (Georgetown University, Washington, D.C,). Previous meetings of TABEC took place in Budapest University of Economic Sciences (2000), Georgetown University (2002), ESADE Barcelona (2004), The Wharton  School, University of Pennsylvania (2006), Bocconi University Milan (2008), York University, Toronto (2010), Norwegian School of Economics, Bergen (2012) and University of Notre Dame (2014).

Related to TABEC Edward Elgar publishes the "Series in TransAtlantic Business Ethics Studies" edited by Laszlo Zsolnai and George Brenkert. The following volumns have been published in the series.
