Events

ECGI engages with its members and partners through wide-raging events around the world. These take the form of academic conferences, roundtables, and practitioner-academic events. The aim of these events is to encourage discussion and debate across geographic, industry and disciplinary boundaries. An example of this, is the successful Global Corporate Governance Colloquia (GCGC) which allows for academic debate between specialist academics in Finance, Law, Management and Business.
