About the event

The Global Corporate Governance Colloquia (GCGC) is a global initiative to bring 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, Leibniz Institute for Financial Research SAFE/DFG LawFin Center, Goethe University Frankfurt (Germany), National University of Singapore,  Peking University,  Seoul National University,  Stanford University, Swedish House of Finance,  University of Oxford,  University of Tokyo, and Yale University.

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. The current practitioner partners are Zurich Insurance Group and Japan Exchange Group (JPX).


In anticipation of the GCGC event, the organisers also presented a virtual workshop on ‘The History of the Corporation’ on 10 June 2021. The workshop highlighted Imperial Russia, turn of the century Egypt and China, Edwardian Britain and the Gilded Age US, exploring issues of corporate governance that continue to resonate in the present day. The morning sessions examined the relative performance of western-style corporations and their indigenous alternatives in Russia, Egypt, and China. More details on this event are available here.
