The ECGI Young Scholars group is an online community to share ideas and to support younger scholars in their research endeavours.
The ECGI Young Scholars group is an online community to share ideas and to support younger scholars in their research endeavours. ECGI is supporting this initiative by hosting this group within the existing ECGI Community Platform which acts as an open noticeboard for those with an interest in corporate governance and stewardship.
As a general guideline, the group considers PhD students and scholars within 5 years of their PhD defense to be “young scholars”. They interpret “corporate governance” broadly to refer 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. Stewardship is also included as a broad focus area of research.
