Appointment of new ECGI Research Members

Appointment of new ECGI Research Members

March 27 2018

The European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI) today announces the appointment of 71 new Research Members to add to its distinguished ranks. The new Research Members, who are drawn from academia in Europe, North America, Asia, South America and the Middle East, were admitted on the quality of their academic work in the field of corporate governance. The committee responsible for the selection is currently chaired by Professor Christian Leuz, Joseph Sondheimer Professor of International Economics, Finance and Accounting, University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Also on the committee are Professor Per Strömberg, SSE Centennial Professor of Finance and Private Equity, Stockholm School of Economics and Professor Katharina Pistor, Edwin B. Parker Professor of Comparative Law, Columbia Law School.

The new Research Members will be eligible to publish their academic work on corporate governance and stewardship in the ECGI Working Paper Series (Law and Finance). The series is known for its reliable content, global outlook, and interdisciplinary nature. It is used by scholars, practitioners and policymakers to help shape informed views and debates on a wide range of global topics. A list of the newly appointed members is available below.

The membership structure of ECGI includes both Institutions and individuals on a subscription basis, however only Research Members are entitled to distribute their work to the network. A further tier is the honorific title of Fellow. Fellows are elected by the existing Fellows. ECGI currently elects five Fellows every two years. Previously appointed Fellows include Nobel Laureates Jean Tirole, Oliver Hart and Bengt Holmström.

Speaking about the new appointments, Professor Christian Leuz, said: 

“ECGI has a long established network of leading academics from around the world. With these latest appointments, ECGI is strengthening that network by appointing not only people who have been working successfully in this field for many years, but also scholars who are still early in their academic careers but have already produced interesting and quality work on corporate governance and stewardship. I look forward to seeing the Research Members’ contribution to the continued success of ECGI.”

 

The research work of ECGI Research Members, relating to corporate governance and stewardship, is published in the ECGI Working Paper Series which is accessible here .
