Description

“Corporate Governance and Universal Acceptance: Taking Stock of Progress and Indicators of Future Trends”

The Centre for Corporate Governance Research (CCGR) 10th International Conference on Corporate Governance takes as its theme ‘Corporate Governance and Universal Acceptance: Taking Stock of Progress and Indicators of Future Trends’. We would like to invite papers which examine the extent to which there is universal acceptance of corporate governance and we would be particularly interested in papers which discuss developments in some of the key areas of corporate governance which have been the topic of previous CCGR conferences. Possible topic areas therefore include the evolution of corporate governance; effective boards and responsible investors; the tools of governance; corporate governance and CSR; shareholders and other stakeholders; corporate governance and sustainability; global developments in corporate governance; the role of governance in coping with financial crisis, corporate scandals and failures, etc.

The conference will appeal to:

  • Academics,
  • Policy makers and
  • Business / Industry professionals

The conference will also provide a forum in which delegates can interact and network, and discuss the latest developments in corporate governance and likely future trends.

There will be a panel of keynote speakers, and presentation of papers by leading academics and practitioners in the field. Sir Adrian Cadbury will be attending the conference in his role as External Advisor to the CCGR.

There will be a Best Paper Prize for the best paper presented at the conference.
Papers should be sent as an electronic copy in PDF format, by 30th March 2012 to Karen Hanson,
