  • Professor Alexander Pepper - Professor of Management Practice in the Department of Management at the London School of Economics and Political Science


Professor Burri and Professor Pepper will be discussing an empirical study that was carried out jointly by a philosopher, a sociologist and a management scholar with the support of a professional services firm. It examines what business executives think about distributive justice by studying the views of over a thousand individuals from across the world using a survey instrument designed by the authors based on a thought experiment resembling John Rawls’s original position.
