Teams from ISCTE – Instituto Universitário de Lisboa, Université Paris Dauphine and Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” (FEBA) will compete in the final of the European Ethics Bowl 2022, a competition to raise awareness of the relevance and complexity of current ethical issues in the European context.

Nine teams, each of three students, participated in the semi-finals held in Ljubljana on 12 November.  In addition to the three finalists, teams hailed from Goethe University Frankfurt, EIB Summer School Alumni, University of Antwerp – Faculty of Business and Economics, University of Belgrade, University of Rijeka and University of Zagreb.

The two case studies discussed were “Are gender quotas really enabling gender equality?” and “Standardization of non-financial reporting”.

The winning teams will come to Luxembourg on 9 December (which is global anti-corruption day) for the Final, hosted at and by the EIB.

Launched in 2020  by the EIB Institute and three leading European universities (University of Ljubljana, Université Paris Dauphine, Goethe University Frankfurt), this collaborative event is a competition between participating teams to discuss ethical dilemmas related to economics and business. Creating a platform to debate on different standpoints such as the European Ethics Bowl gives younger generations key skills to work in multicultural institutions.
