Geneva Center for Corporate Governance
The Geneva Center for Corporate Governance promotes evidence-based and responsible corporate governance. Launched in 2020, the Center addresses current developments and innovations in corporate governance through rigorous scientific research, and especially incorporates a stakeholder orientation, as recently advocated by the US Business Roundtable and Klaus Schwab’s 2020 Davos Manifesto. The Center benefits from its unique location in Geneva, a governance center for many multinational corporations, NGOs, and international organizations.
The Center’s team conducts fundamental and applied research, supports teaching, and fosters exchange between academics and practitioners. Corporate governance is broadly defined as the mechanisms, processes, and systems by which organizations are managed and controlled. The Center’s topics include strategic management for boards of directors and owners, ownership types and structures, the role, structure, and composition of boards of directors, and board leadership structures, and more generally innovations in corporate governance. Because of the multidisciplinary nature of corporate governance, the Center’s members are from law, management, and statistics.
