The conference programme also features two sessions of briefings that will re-examine the role of corporate governance in financial systems in the light of current developments and review the policy responses to the current crisis.

The Transatlantic Corporate Governance Dialogue was established in 2004 in order to bring together leading academics from law, economics and finance, regulators, judges, lawmakers, corporate leaders, investors, and other corporate constituencies to engage in forward-looking discussions of corporate governance issues that are or will be at the forefront of policymaking on both sides of the Atlantic. The Dialogue is endorsed by the European Commission. Transcripts of speeches and other remarks at past Dialogues are available at:
