Financial Ethics Research Group

Financial Ethics Group
University of Gothenburg hosts a research group in practical philosophy dedicated to ethical and political issues raised by the financial system.

There is a growing consensus that financial agents and markets are failing to live up to their social responsibilities. The global financial crisis demonstrated how misaligned incentives and poor regulations impose extreme risks on both the financial system itself and society at large. But a more general problem is the seeming inability of financial markets to address the great sustainability challenges of our times, such as global poverty and the threat of climate change.

The Financial Ethics group does world-leading research on ethical alternatives which can bolster more responsible and sustainable financial behavior. The research aims to be both theoretically stringent and practically useful. We also engage with key stakeholders to have a direct impact on financial practices.
