The Global Corporate Governance Colloquia (GCGC) is a global initiative to bring together the best research in law, economics, and finance relating to corporate governance at a yearly conference held at 12 leading universities in the Americas, Asia and Europe. The 12 hosting institutions are:

Columbia University, Harvard University, Imperial College London, National University of Singapore, Peking University, Seoul National University, Stanford University, Swedish House of Finance, University of Oxford, University of Tokyo, Yale University, DFG LawFin Center, Goethe University Frankfurt, Leibniz Institute for Financial Research SAFE.

The aim of the conference series is to attract current research papers of the highest scholarly quality in the field of corporate governance. The conferences are primarily 'academic to academic' events with some participants from industry and the public sector including the practitioner partners of GCGC and other invited panelists. Japan Exchange Group (JPX) is a Practitioner Partner.

The eighth annual GCGC Conference was hosted by University of Oxford on 3 - 4 June 2022.


The conference took place over two days. In addition to the research presentations, there were two panel discussions involving participants from industry and the public sector. The conference dinner was held on the evening of 3 June 2022. The organisers contributed towards the cost of travel and provide up to three nights of hotel accommodation for the presenters.
