The fourth annual GCGC Conference was hosted by Harvard University on 1 – 2 June 2018. The Global Corporate Governance Colloquia (GCGC) is a global initiative to bring together the best research in law, economics and finance relating to corporate governance at a yearly conference held at 12 leading universities in the Americas, Asia and Europe. The 12 hosting institutions are:

Columbia University,  Goethe University Frankfurt,  Harvard University,  London Business School,  National University of Singapore,  Peking University,  Seoul National University,  Stanford University,  Swedish House of Finance,  University of Oxford,  University of Tokyo  and  Yale University.

The aim of the conference series is to attract current research papers of the highest scholarly quality in the field of corporate governance. The conferences are primarily ‘academic to academic’ events with some participants from industry and the public sector including the practitioner partners of GCGC and other invited panelists. The current practitioner partners are the European Investment Bank (EIB),  Zurich Insurance Group,  and  Japan Exchange Group (JPX).
