Peter Löscher Chair of Business Ethics:

The Peter Löscher Chair of Business Ethics and Global Governance explores the conditions for ethical behavior in a globalized and pluralistic world. In this sense, our research is dedicated to the socio-economic order framework and the institutional environment in which individuals interact. This includes the analysis of incentives, as well as the examination of ethical categories which fit into our contemporary world. The goal of our research is to develop institutional design recommendations and give orientation to actors in business, politics and society who face ethical challenges.



Dr. Matthias Uhl

Dr. Matthias Uhl is leader of the Research Group Ethics of Digitization. He conducts research in the areas of the ethics of digitization as well as business ethics. Further research interests are experimental ethics, experimental economics and behavioral economics as well as the philosophy of science.

Research Group Ethics of Digitization:

The research group develops concrete policy suggestions on organizational and state level that help to deal with the diverse ethical challenges caused by digitization. A first research string is devoted to the question of how Human-Machine-Interactions should be designed in a world where numerous decisions with moral consequences are taken in digital environments. A second research string focuses on societal resistances against digitization that are often caused by prejudices against the use of computers in novel domains. The group uses empirical methods, in particular economic experiments, to observe moral behavior directly instead of merely relying on hypothetical statements.
