Global Corporate Governance Colloquium
Seoul National University

to be held on 16 – 17 June 2023
Deadline for submissions: 28 October 2022 (at midnight CEST)

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) is a Practitioner Partner.

The ninth annual GCGC Conference will be hosted by Seoul National University on 16 -17 June 2023. The Conference Committee is inviting researchers to submit recent papers, or extended abstracts on corporate governance (no maximum word count). In this context, corporate governance refers 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. 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.


A selection will be made by a Conference Committee from papers and abstracts that are submitted online before the deadline of 28 October 2022 (at midnight CEST) through the form here.
Researchers will be notified whether their paper has been accepted for the conference before 31 January 2023.


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. The conference dinner will be held on the evening of 16 June 2023. The organisers will contribute towards the cost of travel and provide up to three nights of hotel accommodation for the presenters.

Note: It is intended to convene this meeting physically. However, in the event that it becomes unviable, it will take place online.
