Alongside other moral dilemmas and corporate social responsibility related issues, conflicts of interest are one of the most common challenges faced in the workplace. To date, there is no book devoted to examining the ethics behind conflicts of interest in the context of business. This book aims to rectify that, focusing on the foundations of moral philosophy which informs our understanding of ethics.

Through his clear writing and use of vignettes, the author shows how ethics can be used to identify and manage conflicts of interest in the business world. The book offers original insights on this topic, moving the scholarly debate forward in conflicts of interest, while also offering a clear guide to the ethics of conflicts of interest in business which will become essential reading for students at all levels studying business ethics.
