The Global Corporate Governance Colloquia (GCGC) is an initiative that brings 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, Harvard University, Imperial College London, National University of Singapore, Peking University, Seoul National University, Stanford University, Swedish House of Finance, University of Oxford, University of Tokyo, Yale University, Leibniz Institute for Financial Research SAFE and DFG LawFin Center.
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. Japan Exchange Group (JPX) and Zurich Insurance are practitioner partners.
The eighth annual GCGC Conference will be hosted by University of Oxford on 3 - 4 June 2022. The Conference Committee is inviting researchers to submit recent papers or extended abstracts on corporate governance. 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.
Note: It is intended to convene this meeting physically. However, in the event that it becomes unviable for any reason, it will take place online.
PAPER SELECTION PROCEDURE
A selection will be made by the Conference Committee from papers and extended abstracts that are submitted online before the deadline of 29 October 2021 (midnight CEST) through this submission page (click here). Researchers will be notified whether their paper has been accepted for the conference by 31 December 2021.
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. If convened physically, the conference dinner will be held on the evening of 3 June and the organisers will contribute towards the cost of travel and provide up to three nights of hotel accommodation for the presenters.
