Bernheim Project

CHAIRE HOOVER Louvain-La-Neuve

La fondation Bernheim finance depuis 2004 un projet consacré aux questions de responsabilité sociale dans la vie économique. Ce financement porte d’une part sur un cours en anglais consacré à la responsabilité sociale dans la vie économique (ESPO2212) destiné à des étudiants en master et qui a la particularité de faire intervenir des professeurs, chercheurs et praticiens belges et étrangers sur des thèmes spécifiques faisant l'objet d'un workshop annuel. D’autre part, des bourses de doctorat sont proposées dans le domaine de la responsabilité sociale dans la vie économique afin d'encourager une recherche de qualité dans ce domaine.

Bernheim Lectures in Social Responsibility

These lectures are part of the Bernheim Project « Social Responsibility in Economic Life », of the Utopies pour le temps présent initiative and of the course LHOOV2212. Those who are not attending the course LHOOV2212 and who would like to attend these Bernheim lectures can do so free of charge provided they simply send a mail to Therese Davio with the title « Burdin Lectures ».

This course exposes students to issues of social responsibility that public and private decision makers are facing in economic life. The questions addressed include: How to take into account societal factors when making a decision, beyond direct economic impact and legal compliance? Why should those factors be considered? What are the challenges related to that issue? In particular, how to define and act according to the “common good”? What are the circumstances and settings that facilitate the practice of social responsibility? Students should register on moodle.
