ABOUT THE EVENT
This conference aimed to improve the understanding in Europe of short-termism in corporate governance, i.e., the preference for short-term profits against long-term value. Much of the current academic and societal debate on short-termism has focused on the US and the UK. However, corporate governance in Europe differs in a few fundamental respects from corporate governance in the US and the UK, including the important role that large reference shareholders typically play in European corporate governance. The conference aimed to bring together scholars and practitioners from outside and within Europe to reflect on the question whether corporate governance in Europe contributes to or discourages long-term thinking.
