About the Institute

The European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI) was founded in 2002. It has been established to improve corporate governance through fostering independent scientific research and related activities.

Corporate governance is the basis of accountability in companies, institutions and enterprises, balancing corporate economic and social goals on the one hand with community and individual aspirations on the other.

A proper governance framework is of fundamental importance in strengthening the performance of economies, in particular those in development and transition, and helping to discourage fraud and mismanagement.

The ECGI produces high quality independent scientific research while remaining close to the concerns and interests of corporate, financial and public policy makers. It draws on the expertise of scholars from numerous countries and brings together a critical mass of expertise and interest to bear on this important subject.

The ECGI intends to make a major contribution to the debate on the formulation of policy and development of best corporate governance practice, based on impartial and objective research and the collective expertise of its individual and institutional members.

Membership of the Institute is open to both individuals and organisations. See Membership for benefits and eligibility criteria or:
