This workshop seeks to bring together philosophers and philosophically-minded academics from associated disciplines (e.g. finance, political science, economics, sustainability) working on questions of financial ethics. We invite submissions on all kinds of ethical or political issues raised by money and finance (broadly construed) – including topics such as sustainable finance, socially responsible investing, the ethics of debt, financial fraud, microfinance and global justice, the politics of central banking, and the philosophy of monetary systems.

To submit an abstract, please email Abstracts should be no longer than 500 words. Abstracts should be anonymised, suitable for blind review, and include a separate title page listing author name, institution, paper title, and the author’s contact information. If accepted, talks should aim to be approximately 25-30 minutes long, not inclusive of Q&A.

We strongly encourage PhD students and early-career scholars from underrepresented backgrounds to apply. We have a limited budget for providing financial support for travel and accommodation. 

The deadline for submitting abstracts is 26th March. We aim to let applicants know whether their abstract has been accepted within 7-10 days.
