The fifth annual GCGC Conference will be hosted by the House of Finance and SAFE (Sustainable Architecture for Finance in Europe) at Goethe University Frankfurt on 7– 8 June 2019. 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).

 

PAPER SELECTION PROCEDURE

The Conference Committee is inviting researchers to submit recent papers on corporate governance (no maximum word count). In this context, corporate governance refers to the way in which private and public companies, enterprises, entrepreneurship and financial institutions are governed and run in relation to their purpose, values, ownership, representation, accountability, financing, investment, performance, leadership, direction, management, employment, law, regulation and taxation. Papers will be selected for presentation from the submissions received. Ideally, these submissions should be based on new research that will not have been presented before. Each paper will be assigned a discussant and there will be ample time for questions and comments from the audience.

A selection will be made by a Conference Committee from papers that are submitted online before the deadline of 14 September 2018 (at midnight CET) through the form contained here.  Researchers will be notified whether their paper has been accepted for the conference before 31 October 2018.

ORGANISATION

The conference will take place over two days. In addition to the research presentations, there will be two panel discussions involving participants from industry and the public sector. The conference dinner will be held on the evening of 7 June. The organisers will contribute towards the cost of travel and provide up to three nights of hotel accommodation for the presenters.
