Please join us for this Ethics Forum lunchtime session examining religious approaches to investment.
This forum will provide an opportunity to consider major religious views on the ethics of profit making from investment, and explore potential tensions between capitalism and religious approaches to finance.
Short talks from each speaker outlining a different religious perspective will be followed by a Q&A/discussion session.
The direction of this forum is linked to the University's ongoing reflection on what is ethical in the context of investment. In 2014 the University of Edinburgh has been reviewing its approach to socially responsible investment, and a global campaign movement calling for divestment from fossil fuels has gained much attention.
The Ethics Forum is being held in partnership with the Just World Institute and the Department for Social Responsibility and Sustainability.
Doors open at 12.45pm.
Seminar rooms 1 and 2, Chrystal Macmillan Building, George Square, Edinburgh EH8 9LD
