Aalto University/Flags

Lärarna och forskarna vid enheten för ledarskapsfilosofi har en viktig roll i forskningsrelaterad kontext vid institutionen för ledarskapsstudier. En stor del av den utförda forskningen har fått inspiration från de senaste framstegen i moralfilosofi, politisk filosofi och social epistemologi. Enheten är aktivt involverad inom läroplansarbetet. Förmågor och kunskaper i kritiskt tänkande och etiskt ledarskap är några av de främsta lärandemål i alla program vid handelshögskolan. Forskning vid ledarskapsfilosofi erbjuder unika resurser för utveckling av studiemoduler och inlärningsuppgifter som stödjer studeranden att förvärva dessa kunskaper och förmågor.

Forskning inom enheten för ledarskapsfilosofi har som syfte att skapa dialog mellan etiska och politiska doktriner mellan olika forskningsparadigm.

More information about the project (in Finnish) can be found here.

Political Corporate Responsibility – Jukka Mäkinen

  • This project approaches the political and socio-economic roles of businesses in contemporary societies from the perspective of the liberal theories of social justice. More particularly, the project aims towards a new conception of political corporate responsibility based on some of the key ideas of John Rawls’s political philosophy. The research from this project has appeared in journals such as Business Ethics Quarterly, Journal of Business Ethics, Journal of Global Ethics, Journal of Sustainable Tourism, Management and Organization Review, and Utilitas.

Unorthodox Organizations and Research Ethics of Radical Ethnography – Maarit Laihonen

  • In this post-doctoral research project funded by The Finnish Cultural Foundation, I study the nature of unorthodox organizations in a context of radical resistance. The research is based on a one-year in-depth ethnography on a protest camp. The focus is on theorizing from a peculiar organizational setting, its everyday and political context. In addition, I will contribute to the discussion of research ethics and other methodological questions in utilizing ethnographic methods in sensitive settings.

Interfaces for Empathy: Regenerative notes – Reflecting and developing empathetic practices in post-fossil world – Maarit Laihonen and working group Mari Keski-Korsu and Petri Ruikka

  • Interfaces for Empathy is an interdisciplinary research group, and also an entity that aims for pragmatic results in form of workshops, discussions and actions. The group is researching the contents and method of empathy in collaborative and collective intelligence and action, in order to apply them to creative activism and conscious action. The project funded by Kone Foundation in 2018.

  • Marja’s research focuses on the conceptualization and morality of corporate social responsibility (CSR). Specifically, she explores the essence of CSR and its relation to the profit motive. Additionally, she studies the general moral framing of business ethics.

Business: A Force for Peace – Tilman Bauer 

  • Tilman studies the potential for ethical business to foster holistic peace in society. The idea that peace can be seen as the substance of positive impact in the business context pertains to fundamental questions of the philosophical nature and purpose of business, as well as to corporate social responsibility and business ethics. This study asks how companies can climb the “ladder of morality” in order to move towards a new paradigm of responsible business.
