ABEN brings together scholars and practitioners from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds who share a common interest in business ethics. Conversations and knowledge exchange surrounding a specific discipline or area of interest can be deepened within the ABEN Special Interest Groups (SIGs).

The purpose of the ABEN SIGs is to build and strengthen communities of practice in the respective areas of interest. Currently we have ABEN Special Interest Groups in Accounting Ethics, Business Ethics Education, and Qualitative Research. The meetings of ABEN Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are organised by the respective convenors of each SIG. ABEN SIG meetings are predominantly virtual and can take place multiple times throughout the year, depending on each group’s preferences. Membership with the ABEN SIGs is free, and all you need to do to join a SIG is to let the respective coordinators know via email.
