The fifth annual GCGC Conference was hosted by the Research Center SAFE (Sustainable Architecture for Finance in Europe) at the House of Finance, 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:
