About the event

It is already clear that the COVID-19 pandemic will have dire economic consequences, and collective thought is being applied to what policies can better ensure societies’ resilience and their quick and dynamic recovery once the crisis is over. Corporate governance scholars can also help policymakers devise sound and effective policies for this purpose. This global webinar convened scholars, practitioners and policymakers with the aim of advancing the decision-making process.

Topics included, but were not limited to:
·         Corporate social responsibility in war-like times
·         Corporate governance digitalization
·         Takeover defences and M&A trends
·         Bond markets and bankruptcy
·         The governance implications of emergency laws and government bailouts
·         Securities regulation (disclosure, short-selling bans, etc.)
·         ESG and Impact investing
·         Systemic risk and financial stability following exogenous shocks
