To explore the “Athens Charter for Business”

To explore the “Athens Charter for Business” by Antonis D. Papagiannidis Much talk about democracy, as of lately. The recent shocks arising out of the Ukraine war and the re-emergence of the West/East divide along lines of democracies vs. autocracies (with the former cosying up to the likes of Venezuela or Saudi Arabia, to be true) offers much to mull over.
