The IFC-Global Corporate Governance Forum (IFC-GCGF), the Indian School of Business (ISB), and the Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research (IGIDR), are organizing the 4th International Conference on Corporate Governance in Emerging Markets to be held at Hyderabad, INDIA on August 23-24, 2013. The conference series brings together researchers from around the world investigating the impact of corporate governance on firm performance and economic development, and the role of legal, economic and political institutions in shaping corporate governance systems in emerging markets. The conference series aims to facilitate dissemination of state of the art research on corporate governance in emerging markets with the objective of supporting policy and practice development. To this end the conference will provide a forum to discuss and solicit research from both theoretical and policy perspectives to improve corporate governance research. The conference will also provide an opportunity to inquire how academic research findings relate to practice in emerging markets by having leading practitioners as discussants.

The conference series is an undertaking of EMCGN (Emerging Markets Corporate Governance Research Network) chaired by Prof. Stijn Claessens of University of Amsterdam and IMF:

As in past conferences hosted by Sabanci University Corporate Governance Forum in 2007, by Coppead Graduate Business School and the FGV Law School in 2009, and by Corporate Governance Institute at Korea University in 2011 papers on all aspects of corporate governance are expected to be presented at the conference. The conference has particularly invited papers focusing on comparative research comprising clusters of countries sharing similar institutional or macroeconomic characteristics. Clusters may comprise of countries that are geographically close as in regions, or distant such as the BRIC countries or countries with similar corporate governance reform approaches. Papers are expected to be from law, economics and finance fields and also from a variety of other disciplines such as sociology, organizational science, and management. Both theoretical and empirical papers, as well as clinical studies, have been welcome.
