Opening Lecture – 22/10/2019

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AND BUSINESS ETHICS

Debating Development is both an accredited course and a public platform for reflection on topics of development. Six debates will be organised that tackle different aspects of the subject. Each topic is introduced on the basis of a presentation by a renowned speaker. A discussant sets the stage for further debate. Our speakers come from international institutes, civil society and academia. Most of the discussions are moderated by the academic staff of the UAntwerp. This year’s theme will be “The Role of the Private Sector in Sustainable Development”

The opening lecture will be about  Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Business Ethics. The keynote speaker is Céline Loucheprofessor Business & Society at the Audencia Management School in Nantes, France and guest lecturer at the Waikato University in Hamilton, New Zealand. She teaches and researches in the areas of sustainability and corporate responsibility. She used to work as Sustainability Analyst for Responsible Investment for the Dutch research institute of Triodos. 

Luc Van Liedekerke, professor business ethics at the Centre for Ethics of the University of Antwerp, will give a response.

The debate will be moderated by Cassandra Vet, assistant at the Institute for Development Policy (IOB) at the University of Antwerp.
