Conversation on Value5/005
We all like to think we’re good people, but in a toxic environment, we could go to the dark side. Strong organizational contexts push good people towards unethical decisions. In our conversation, we explore the when, where, and who of taking control over the influence of these dark forces and global value chains.
Dr. Guido Palazzo is Professor of Business Ethics at HEC Lausanne, University of Lausanne. In his research, he is passionate about the dark side of the force and examines unethical decision making from various angles. He is mainly known for his studies on globalization, in particular on human rights violations in global value chains, but he also studies the reasons for unethical behavior in organizations and the impact of organized crime on business and society.
