CIBER Focus Special Series: Business & Peace
Corporate Governance with Dr. John Sullivan
November 21, 2016
In part 6 of our ongoing conversation about the role business can and should play in the world’s peace processes, Dr. John Sullivan, retired Executive Director of the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE), will speak about his how corporate governance and democratic development can advance peace. “Doing business and creating an economic incentive for good governance and anti-corruption is the name of the game.” When governments and business work together to build the institutions and regulatory environment necessary to create commerce and opportunity, lasting stability and sustainable growth is achieved.
The ability for business—entrepreneurs, SMEs, and multinationals alike—to act as a stabilizing force in the world has been changing and leading to exciting research and action. On October 3, IU CIBER kicked off a month-long discussion on the role business can play in peace-making, peace-building, and peace-keeping. Held in partnership with the Kelley School of Business, IU Office of the Vice President for International Affairs, the Institute for Defense & Business, and the IU School of Global and International Studies, the month-long conversation brings together representatives from business, government, academics, and NGOs to examine this topic in a free and public discussion.
