ECGI Research Member Appointments

Welcome to the new ECGI Research Members

The research work that emanates from ECGI is undertaken by leading scholars around the globe. This important network of academics is at the very core of what ECGI does, drawing on the finest minds in academia from all over the world to tackle some of the most important issues that confront business and governments today. ECGI uses the power of research to change ideas, influence practice and formulate policy to benefit all of us.

Corporate governance lies at the heart of our capitalist systems. It is the interface between capital markets and companies, between employees and executives, and between society and the corporate sector. It is the driver of what companies do, how they do it and the effects they have on others. In other words, it sits at the centre of the success and failure of our economic systems.

The mission of ECGI is to assist the top academics in the field of corporate governance in bringing their research to the attention of leading practitioners, policymakers and thought leaders by making state of the art knowledge accessible and relevant to them. It promotes the development of new ideas through research that extends the boundaries of our understanding of how corporate governance contributes to the flourishing of business, economies and societies.

It is, therefore, with great pride that we announce the latest appointments to the ECGI Research Member network who will continue to shape the future thinking on corporate governance thinking.
