TaCo - Il Tavolo del Confronto: the initiative for responsible multinational corporations and the ethical, legal and economic implications


Institutional Communication Service

Date: 24 November 2020 / 17:30 - 19:00

Aula magna, USI Campus Ovest Lugano (in streaming)

On 29 November the Swiss people will be called upon to express their views on a topic that is crucial for Swiss society and the Swiss economy and which will, directly and indirectly, affect most of our companies that operate extensively in international markets. If the initiative "for responsible multinationals" is approved, will it be easy to implement it? What impact will it have on the economy and the reputation of our companies? Is it right that regulations should increasingly take up the space traditionally reserved for ethics?

This issue will be discussed live streaming on Tuesday, 24 November from the USI Aula magna (West Campus Lugano) from 5:30 pm:

Gianluca Colombo, Dean of USI Faculty of Economics

Ilaria Espa, Assistant Professor of International Business Law at USI

Andrea Moroni Stampa, CTO Hemar Group

Markus Krienke, Full Professor of Modern Philosophy and Social Ethics at the Faculty of Theology in Lugano

Moderated by Giancarlo Dillena

The discussion will be held in Italian.
