Professor Phillips will be discussing 'Organisation and Responsibility'. He will explore how in a time where innovations in economic activities have caused profound changes, our ability to assess and motivate responsible business practices has lagged behind. In the process creating, in many cases, a ‘rule of no one’ when it comes to assessing the accompanying ethical challenges. Professor Phillips explores how to better understand responsibility in a world of complex value chains and radically diffuse corporate responsibility.
