Egi:

In terms of social responsibility, one should engage the work of Norma Haan.

Thus see Social Science as Moral Inquiry by Norma Haan; Robert N. Bellah; Paul Rabinow; William Sullivan;  Dr. Rabinow today teaches Anthropology at U.C. Berkeley

A contextual reference may be found here;  Peggy Cooper Davis has previously contributed legal advocacy on behalf of interpersonal morality

I'm happy to contribute more to the concerns raised in the "strengthen ethics" message you forwarded.

former research assistant for Norma Haan

A while back I posted a link to a pre-publication draft of my in-press article: "Steps to Strengthen Ethics in Organizations: Research Findings, Ethics Placebos, and What Works."

Now that the manuscript has been copy-edited and the article has been published in the new issue of the journal, the publisher (Taylor & Francis) has made the final published version available free on their website (link HERE.)

Here's the abstract:

"Research shows that many organizations overlook needs and opportunities to strengthen ethics. Barriers can make it hard to see the need for stronger ethics and even harder to take effective action. These barriers include the organization's misleading use of language, misuse of an ethics code, culture of silence, strategies of justification, institutional betrayal, and ethical fallacies. Ethics placebos tend to take the place of steps to see, solve, and prevent problems. This article reviews relevant research and specific steps that create change."
