Responsible Business for Uncertain Times and a Sustainable Future

Global Corporate Governance Institute: Who we are

In a global economy, no business or form of commerce is an island unto itself.  Rapid and dynamic changes in technology, markets, political and legal institutions, and indeed cultures, have all created new challenges.  In such a global context, no scholar, no discipline, no university, no think tank, no NGO, no form of media, can remain an island unto itself. 

In order to overcome the myopia of limited perspectives, outworn doctrines, tired prior agendas, and vested interests, a new organization has been created:  Global Corporate Governance / Corporate Social Responsibility.  Our intention is to bring together scholars from many fields along with business / academic / cultural / religious and political leaders to form a global alliance dedicated to rethinking and integrating value issues into management practice, education and development.  

Toward this end, we plan to sponsor conferences, seminars, and workshops worldwide.  The products of these events will evolve into an online journal and website.

We launched our organization by holding our first conference in London, the educational and financial capital of the world.  There are three important aspects of this initial event:

  • It will combine Corporate Governance with Corporate Social Responsibility.
  • It will Endeavour to bring together scholars in business, the law, and the humanities.
  • It will convene, under the sponsorship of Springer, the contributors to the newly published Encyclopedia of Corporate Social Responsibility.

The two-day conference (14th - 15th August 2014) consisted of a keynote address, inter-disciplinary plenary sessions, multiple presentation streams, panels, poster sessions, Dissertation advice, and best paper awards.

July 29th - 31st 2015: 2nd conference in Nanjing, China
August 1st - 3rd 2016: 3rd conference in Cologne, Germany (see conference brochure here).
