SNS Corporate Governance Roundtable
In the autumn of 2012, SNS started a forum for a research-based dialogue on corporate governance and ownership questions.
Corporate governance is high on the political agenda, for example at the EU-level where there are suggestions for changes in the regulations and new recommendations. SNS would like to contribute to Swedish politicians and decision-makers having relevant decision data for how the EU initiatives are best to be met.
The aim of the programme is to introduce various, mainly international, perspectives in the Swedish debate on ownership questions. Corporate governance is a swiftly growing research area which is ultimately about how we ensure that owners, boards of directors and firm managements have the appropriate driving forces for value creation and risk taking. This, in turn, is of great importance for the long-term development power and stability of the economy. A network of leading agents from the Swedish industry is connected to the programme.
The programme consists of three main parts:
- Seminars with internationally leading researchers
- Round table discussions with the programme network
- Presentations of current research in SNS Analys and final reports that summarize those conclusions and recommendations that have emerged in the course of the programme.
