Work Plan

The research and the training of the network will be organised around the four key themes of Corporate Governance (Click title for further information):

Shareholders and Takeovers
Boards and Executive Motivation
Debtholders and Multiple Constituencies
Institutional Aspects, Regulation and Policy

The research and training will be based on establishing a solid foundation in empirical and theoretical analyses and collaborations between researchers based in different fields: economics, finance, management, political economy and law.

An important task of co-ordination will be to provide an appropriate balance between activities by the teams on the different themes. Regular contact between the teams and network meetings will be used as a means of achieving this. Moreover, yearly workshops are planned to discuss progress and to disseminate research results. The research work plan entails the following allocation of tasks between the teams, distributed over the four different themes specified above (with designated teams responsible for the sub-tasks of each theme).
