Questions the speakers will address:

  • Globalization is asymmetric, and politics lag behind – can corporate responsibility fill the gap?
  • There is much greenwashing in politics and business, but is there virtue in hypocrisy?
  • Corporate sustainability is challenged by ecology, but what about fairness?
  • Do we need to bring the state back in, and is there a case for partnered governance?
  • Is sustainability primarily for front-runners, if so what about the rest?
  • Business is in a squeeze between democratic and autocratic states. What are the ways out?

The debate will moderated by Christian Borch, journalist and former NRK News anchor.
