 Call for Papers - Corporate Governance in Emerging Markets - Deadline 3 October 2011
 

Overview  

On Wednesday 25 May 2011, the ICFR, in conjunction with Hawkamah the Institute for Corporate Governance, hosted a high level interactive roundtable to further the ICFR’s programme on Corporate Governance in Emerging Markets.

The ICFR was particularly interested in developing a clear understanding of both the macro-economic and micro-economic benefits of robust yet practical governance structure.  For a corporation, does good governance have a long term demonstrable effect on board performance and company performance? For an economy, how can effective governance widen and deepen financial markets by improving attractiveness and reducing risk for investors?

This invitation-only event, entitled “The Impact of Governance on Sustained Growth in the GCC Region - Opportunities, Obstacles and Actions”, coincided with a call for papers which will be presented and discussed at a major ICFR conference in Hong Kong in December 2011. The objective of this programme was to inform and support policy decisions and practice development in emerging markets.
