As we navigate a time of global instability, the ability of the corporation to deliver prosperity is put to the test. In this symposium, experts in company law, corporate governance and corporate finance discuss what “trigger points” in the legal and financial architecture of the corporation we might activate, at this point in time, to help bring stability and sustainability to social, environmental and economic systems. How may we, relying on mechanisms in law, governance and finance, ensure the corporation operates as a viable change agent towards a stable and sustainable future? In three interactive panel sessions, the symposium tackles individual structural levers in the architecture of the corporation to discuss what promise they potentially hold:
- The evolution of corporate purpose and ownership.
- Standards and systems of corporate reporting and disclosure.
- Emerging instruments and institutions in corporate finance.
The symposium includes short panel presentations followed by interactive discussion with members of the audience. It closes with a brief concluding session. Conference proceedings will be published.
The symposium is organised by the Research Group on Global Corporate Law. For enquiries about further information, please contact Dr Taskin Iqbal or Prof Nina Boeger.
