(VF)Cet article prend acte de l’omniprésence du risque dans la prise de décision managériale. Se fondant sur une vision partenariale de l’entreprise, il propose de mieux préciser ce que recouvre la notion de gestion du risque éthique. Après avoir présenté de manière synthétique les différents outils de gestion du risque éthique, il livre quelques réflexions sur le caractère paradoxal d’une telle gestion. (VA) This paper is motivated by the ubiquity of risk in managerial decision-making. It aims at giving a more precise definition of the notion of ethical risk by using a stakeholder-based approach. After a succinct presentation of the various tools used in the management of ethical risks, it highlights the paradoxical nature of this management process.
