2nd International Corporate Governance (Virtual) Conference

Conference date

17 Sep 2021


Cardiff University (Virtual), UK


The implications of the Covid-19 Pandemic and recent global financial crisis continue to highlight the role of corporate governance in the broader economy. In a fast-moving and globalised corporate environment, designing and regulating corporate governance is ever more challenging. In particular, the recurrent corporate scandals of the last two decades have sparked a series of revisions to governance policies, initiating reforms on a global scale.

Following the success of the Inaugural International Corporate Governance held in 2018, the Cardiff Corporate Governance Research Group (CCGRG) are organising a one-day virtual Conference on 17 September 2021. The aim of the Conference is to bring together leading researchers, practitioners and policymakers to discuss the grand challenges of a rapidly changing political, social and economic landscape. We invite the submission of original papers focusing on research questions with consequences for corporate governance theory and practice. Papers adopting international and interdisciplinary perspectives in corporate governance are particularly welcome.

CCGRG is a multi-disciplinary group including academics from Business, Economics, Law and Politics. Our members investigate a number of important issues and research questions in corporate governance. These include boards of directors, international corporate governance, leadership, culture and organization, executive compensation, and governance in new ventures, among others.

Professor Konstantinos Stathopoulos is Professor of Accounting and Finance at Alliance Manchester Business School. He is the joint Editor-in-Chief of Corporate Governance: An International Review.

Professor Marc Goergen is Professor of Finance at IE Business School. He is also a Research Associate of the ECGI and an Associate Editor of the British Journal of Management.

Please send a PDF copy of your paper to CardiffCG@cardiff.ac.uk by 1 August 2021. Decision will be announced by 17 August 2021. For further information please visit www.cardiff.ac.uk/research/explore/research-units/cardiff-corporate-governance-research-group
