How does economic activity succeed from a Protestant sense of responsibility?
Business ethics develops rules and principles connecting performance orientation and incentives on the one hand, and fairness and justice, on the other. In Protestant business ethics, this is done in the light of the reformatory understanding of profession and vocation. Creation of value and valuing the individual belong together.
To establish the connection between industry and common weal, it is crucial to discuss the prerequisites indispensable for a general acceptance of markets and a competition regime that is regarded as just. The economic players are to experience and accept credibility and fairness as economic necessities. Conceptions of economic and social policies such as the German market economy and Ordoliberalism are rooted in the cultural and religious traditions of our common weal.
The Evangelische Akademie zu Berlin would like to shape or create interfaces between politics, companies and non-governmental organisations. It is not only to people in leadership positions that we would like to offer an exchange on ethical conflicts supporting their personal development at the same time.
