An ethics of difference: the contribution of Bracha Ettinger to management and organization studies

WithKate Kenny, Marianna Fotaki

Conventional approaches to ethics within business and management scholarship are lacking, and authors have recently called for new theoretical developments. For some critics, business ethics as a topic of research has merely ensured that the interests of powerful stakeholders are maintained (Jones, 2003; Roberts, 2003). Others argue that it represents an attempt to eradicate differences between people in workplaces, creating homogeneous organizations (ten Bos, 2003). In response to this, critical organizational scholars have lately begun to examine ethics in new ways.
