Research in Ethical Issues in Organizations
Research in Ethical Issues in Organizations (REIO) is a double-blind, peer-reviewed series that publishes rigorous academic research into organizational ethics from a wide variety of disciplinary perspectives including, but not limited to, business management, philosophy, sociology, psychology, religion, accounting, and marketing. 

In this volume, War, Peace and Organizational Ethics, expert contributors draw upon philosophers such as Aristotle, Alasdair MacIntyre, and Emmanuel Levinas in order to explore how the ethics of war and peace resonate with organizational ethics. The topics covered include: 

  • the role of business in the “War on Terror”;
  • the ethics of robot decision-making in military contexts; 
  • the use of force in UN peacekeeping missions;
  • John Wooden’s conception of moral leadership;
  • the implementation of meaningful change in relation to well-being in and outside of work; 
  • unethical pro-organizational behaviour;
  • forsaking Aristotle’s Mean and pursuing the extreme.
Ideally suited for researchers and professionals, this book poses questions that go to the very heart of the role organizations play in greater social conflicts, as well as the role that conflict plays in shaping organizations.
