Governance, Executive Compensation and Excessive Risk

The financial crisis of 2008/09 has brought about a wide range of policy measures, and these measures have helped to circumvent a major global recession. The crisis has also reinforced the need for structural reforms —especially in the banking and financial services sector—that still have to be addressed by governments, and the need for policy coordination on a global level.

The goal of the conference was to take stock of the recent research findings and to debate the various regulation proposals—at both the national and international level—to better identify the areas of consensus (if any) on these important issues. Ultimately, our goal was to contribute to help firms and governments to craft the best policies for promoting socially responsible and sustainable economies.
