BEN-Africa 19th Annual Business Ethics Conference

Africa beyond 2020 – Ethical Reflections, Transformational Possibilities 

sponsored by 





Swakopmund, Namibia: 5-6 November 2020 


With the hindsight of several narratives about the promise and potential of Africa – including ‘Africa Rising’ and ‘African Renaissance’ – we offer, at this year’s conference, an opportunity to reflect upon the ethics story, more particularly the business ethics story, that can be told about Africa. Tracing the trajectory of this story fits the story of BEN-Africa, from its inaugural conference in 2000, and the task it assigned itself then: to strengthen the commitment and competence of Africans to do business with moral integrity. As we convene in Swakopmund, Namibia, we ask, how successful has this mission been? What are the national factors and global trends which have worked against achieving greater success in this mission?  Is the mission still a worthwhile goal?  What still remains to be done? What technologies, human paradigms, and governance frameworks offer the most sustainable path to transforming Africa into becoming the source of its own legitimacy and value?

We will be hosting our conference at the Strand Hotel in Swakopmund, Namibia
