Questions of corporate governance and corporate responsibility have been heightened by a number of corporate scandals and other events leading up to the financial crash of 2008. In the meantime, philosophers and lawyers have been questioning the very meaning of corporate agency and responsibility, while progress by economists in the theory of the firm is widely perceived to have slowed.
Bringing together internationally leading scholars from several disciplines, the First Symposium of the World Interdisciplinary Network for Institutional Research (WINIR), organized with the assistance of the Brenno Galli Chair of Law and Economics, will address these problems, and forge a road ahead for future research and policy.
Submissions from any disciplineon the following topics are welcome: nature of the corporation, corporate agency, corporate responsibility, corporate organization, corporate finance, corporate governance, corporate law, corporate regulation, and corporate history.
