The book aims to provide a comprehensive, new look at business ethics topics and models from a European perspective. Apart from theoretical arguments and empirical data, case studies and games are used to get closer to real life problematics of business. The book is written by leading business ethics professors of the Community of European Management Schools (CEMS).
Chapters of the handbook first describe the central issue and the latest theories and practices. They then introduce new approaches and analyze real world examples. Finally conclusions are provided, which include ethical warning signals, proposals for future research and suggested policy recommendations.
