Preventing Corporate Misconduct

In this seminar series researchers present their current work on corporate misconduct and how it can be reined in. Corporate misconduct occurs when firms violate rules or expectations that are legally or socially enforced. Despite stricter regulation and growing awareness, corporate misconduct continues to occur frequently, causing significant costs to society (health or environmental harm, aggressive tax planning/evasion, human rights abuses, financial fraud, and corruption).

The seminar is jointly organized by the FACTS and the Management & Marketing Department, and the Freie Universität Empirical Legal Studies Center (FUELS).
