ECGI - European Corporate Governance Institute




Organization Profile

The European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI) is improving Corporate Governance through independent scientific research and related activities.

The ECGI is an international scientific non-profit association, providing a forum for debate and dialogue between academics, legislators and practitioners, focusing on major corporate governance issues and thereby promoting best practice.

Its primary role is
to undertake, commission and disseminate research on corporate governance. Based upon impartial and objective research and the collective knowledge and wisdom of our members, we can advise on the formulation of corporate governance policy and development of best practice and undertake any other activity that will improve understanding and exercise of corporate governance. .

The European Corporate Governance Institute has close links with the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) and co-operates with other institutions that are active in the field, for example the International Corporate Governance Network (ICGN) and the Global Corporate Governance Forum (GCGF).

In seeking to achieve its aim of improving corporate governance, ECGI acts as a focal point for academics working on corporate governance in Europe and elsewhere, encouraging the interaction between the different disciplines, such as economics, law, finance and management.
