Fellowship Committee

The Institute awards the title Fellow of ECGI to individuals who have demonstrated scientific excellence or other outstanding achievements in the area of corporate governance.

Membership of the Fellowship Committee is by rotation. Every two years, after each fellowship election, two Committee members, one of whom is the current Chairman, stand down.  Their replacements are nominated by the outgoing Committee Chairman for ratification by the ECGI Board which also sets the rules governing the nomination of new Fellows (see below).

The current membership of the Committee is as follows:

The Nomination Process
The Fellowship Committee oversees the nomination of new Fellows as follows:
Elections are held every other year.
All current Fellows are invited to suggest a maximum of two names for new Fellows.
On behalf of the Committee, two lists of the nominations are drawn up, one consisting of those based in Europe and the other of those outside Europe. The Committee may choose to add names of those put forward but not elected in the previous round of nominations.
All current Fellows are then asked to nominate 5 from each list by a certain date.
The Committee then selects the top 3 nominees from the European list and the top 2 from the list of those based outside Europe, or vice versa, taking into consideration the balance between Europe and the rest of the world and that between economics and law. Finally, these names are put forward to the Board for ratification.
Successful candidates are then invited by letter signed by the Committee Chairman and the ECGI Chairman to become an ECGI Fellow. 
On acceptance, the new Fellows automatically become Research Members of the Institute.
The names of the new Fellows are announced at the following General Assembly.
