The Ethics of Lobbying

 

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

 

GISME’s fall 2013 symposium will explore “The Ethics of Lobbying.” The symposium will be held in Fisher Colloquium at the McDonough School of Business on Georgetown University’s main campus.

 

The effect of lobbying on government policy is a topic of perennial comment in the media and research by social scientists. However, the ethical quality of the activity is less frequently discussed. Many harbor an unexamined assumption that there is something ethically suspect about lobbying. Is there any basis for this assumption? GISME's fall symposium is designed to answer this question.

 

This sympoisum will bring together 14 of the nation's top political scientist and philosophers with diverse ideological viewpoints to evaluate this issue. The conference sessions are designed to leave time for significant exchange with the audience. Please join us for what is sure to be an interesting and engaging event.

 

Lunch and refresments will be provided.
