Highlights from the second Global Corporate Governance Colloquia (GCGC) conference are now available on the new GCGC website. The event, which took place in Stockholm, Sweden in June 2016 was organised by ECGI and the Swedish House of Finance, and it was supported by the GCGC members. The new website contains videos of the presentations, together with links to the papers and slides.
The next GCGC conference will take place in Tokyo on 2-3 June 2017 and details of the programme will soon be added to the website. Attendance at this event is by invitation only. It will be possible to submit a paper to present at the fourth annual event later this year. Details of the process will be published on the ECGI website and members will be notified.
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, London Business School, National University of Singapore, Peking University, Seoul National University, Stanford, Swedish House of Finance, University of Oxford, University of Tokyo and Yale. 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).
