Since the IBE'sfounding in 1986, the business world and the application of business ethics have changed beyond recognition.
As part of the Institute of Business Ethics 25th Anniversary celebrations, the IBE asked 25 thought leaders on what the next 25 years may have in store. What will the challenges be and how can these be met? Taken from the world of business, academia, politics and strategic thinking, from the UK, US and Europe, their opinions are many and varied.

balancing both governmental and business intrusion against personal privacy -
