Abstract

This book introduces a distinct educational and public engagement project on ethical discourse in finance by considering interdisciplinary and diverse perspectives. The project was hosted by the International Centre for Management and Governance Research (ICMGR) at Edinburgh Napier University, UK. Since its launch in autumn 2016, the Centre actively reached out and engaged with local and international stakeholders through its regular seminars, conferences and forums on governance and ethical finance. The intellectual activities featured collaborative initiatives between academics, faith leaders, professionals, social entrepreneurs, and diverse members of the public irrespective of background. When the world stood still due to the COVID-19 outbreak that erupted in 2020, it was a time to reflect; hence, the birth of this edited volume. The contents offer an insightful perspective as evidence of diversity in ideas and opinions, which ICMGR genuinely promoted and celebrated throughout its intellectual activities.
