Thursday, January 12, at the latest meeting of Management by Ethics, prof. Martin Schlag spoke about immigration according to the social teaching of the Church, focusing especially on the topic of integration, and how this might be realized. The mayor of Palermo, Leoluca Orlando, gave a very concrete perspective on the issue, sharing stories from the immigrants arriving to the port of Palermo and various steps taken by the city to promote integration. These initiatives, according to the mayor, have been very effective and are bearing good fruits, whether it be in the construction of a truly integrated community or - unexpectedly - in the fight against the mafia.
The event, hosted in the picturesque setting of the ancient Trajan's Market, was sponsored by SoftLab, with the presence of the managing director Luca Laurenti.

Marta Rocchi and Ignacio Ferrero won the “Investigation and Studies Rafael Termes Carreró Prize” from the Catalan Foundation of Financial Analysts. The Catalan Delegation of the Spanish Institute of Financial Analysts, which is comprised of more than 1500 analysts and professionals in the financial world in Spain, chose to recognize the research of Marta Rocchi and Ignacio Ferrero in the field of finance ethics.
The study, entitled Wall Street and the (ir)relevance of ethics: The formation of character of financial analysts, enters in dialogue with the argument of the philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre regarding the moral character of the agents of the financial world (presented by MacIntyre in a 2015 article, The Irrelevance of Ethics), and formulates a proposal for the teaching of anthropology, ethics, and history in business schools and faculties of economics as a necessary (though insufficient) instrument in the formation of moral character of future financial agents.
The Rafael Termes Prize was instituted on the 50th anniversary of the Spanish Institute of Financial Analysts, of which Rafael Termes was the founder. The prize also included a contribution to the work of the two researchers, who, after attending the ceremony of presentation of the award will return to the Catalan Delegation of Financial Analysts to present in detail the content of their article.
The jury, appointed by the Foundation’s Board of Directors, included Cirus Andreu, Ramón Adell, Eduardo Martínez Abascal, Josep Lluís Oller and Jordi Melé.
Marta Rocchi is a research assistant at the MCE Research Centre at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, lecturer of Corporate Social Responsibility at the Apollinare Institute of Religious Studies, and doctoral candidate at the University of Navarra in the field of finance ethics. She is a member of the Academy of Management, the Society for Business Ethics, and the International Society of MacIntyrean Studies.
