The Role of Business in Society


The 2009 EABIS conference has offered a challenging exploration of an issue that has vital importance today to business and all of its key stakeholders: the current financial crisis. Furthermore, this year´s Colloquium has focused on the governance of the firm in the context of new global governance challenges.

EABIS and IESE also have particular interest in how the role of business in society is likely to change and to what extent governance mechanisms can foster corporate responsibility at the global, company and individual levels.
