    Women on Boards.John Dobson & Mahdi Rastad - 2018 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 37 (1):1-12.
    In recent years, the US, UK, and Continental Europe have pursued board gender diversity through markedly different means. Several European countries have imposed mandatory quotas, whereas the UK and US are relying on the endogenous mechanisms of social pressure and shareholder proposals respectively. Despite their obvious allure as a means of bringing about rapid change, evidence is mounting that European board gender diversity quotas may yield various deleterious side effects; and quotas may not be as successful in their core aim (...)

    The Global Banking Sector.Seumas Miller - 2018 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 37 (1):13-44.
    Corrupt, unethical and imprudent practices in the global banking sector have been identified as among the causes of the Global Financial Crisis. In this paper I provide an analysis of institutional corruption that enables institutional corruption within the global banking sector to be viewed in relation to economic injustice, and demarcated from the unfortunate consequences of unavoidably risky market-based activity, poor judgment, ill-informed policy-making etc.; argue for an understanding of and response to institutional corruption in the global banking sector that (...)

    Auditor Independence.Jim Peterson - 2018 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 37 (1):45-66.
    The concept of “auditor independence”—that the provider of assurance on financial information should be free of conflicting interests—is deeply embedded in the world’s capital markets. This paper examines stresses on the global model of Big Audit that call into question both the basis and the ongoing usefulness of auditor independence: The threats to the stability of the model, based on the dominance of the Big Four international accounting networks in providing audit services to the world’s large public companies.

    A Cross-Country Comparison of the Corporate Social Responsibility Orientation in Germany and Qatar.Maria Anne Schmidt & Daniel Cracau - 2018 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 37 (1):67-104.
    Corporate social responsibility is a phenomenon of increasing interest. Today, it is practiced in most countries around the globe and studied in various fields of academia. However, the focus still lies on Western developed countries, their understanding, and implementation of CSR. This paper focuses on the comparison of the orientation towards CSR in Germany and Qatar, thereby closing a research gap by providing insights from a Middle Eastern country. Based on a survey among 265 business students in both countries, the (...)

    Engineering Ethics in China.Hengli Zhang & Michael Davis - 2018 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 37 (1):105-135.
    This article describes China’s century-long concern with the professional ethics of engineers, especially a succession of codes of engineering ethics going back at least to 1933. This description is the result both of our own archival research and of “philosophical history”, the application of concepts from the philosophy of professions to the facts historians have discovered. Engineers, historians, social scientists, and philosophers of technology, as well as students of professional ethics, should find this description interesting. It certainly provides a reason (...)
