Business Ethics in the Middle East fills a crucial gap in the Middle East educational landscape. Written in an easy and accessible format, this book covers the foundations of business ethics by drawing from both Eastern and Western traditions. The chapters include many examples, case studies, activities and illustrations that are customized to the Middle Eastern market, yet relevant to readers outside the Middle East who want to get thorough insights about business behaviour in the region. A special module introduces the Arab Middle Eastern context that non-Arab readers would find valuable. The author addresses topics related to organizational culture, leadership, CSR, corporate governance, marketing, HR, accounting, finance, and production. This is accomplished with a deep attention to the cultural and contextual elements of the Middle East. Special attention is given to religious business ethics, while still deeply engaging the vast heritage of Western ethical systems. This combination is essential for the development of a comprehensive approach to the topic of business ethics. This textbook will be essential reading for students of business ethics in the Middle East, and will also be valuable for students and researchers across business ethics, Islamic Studies, religion and philosophy.
