HEIF-5 award for the FMG

We are delighted to announce that the FMG has been awarded Higher Education Innovation Funding (HEIF-5) that will contribute to the Higher Education Funding Council for England’s (HEFCE) objective to develop knowledge-based interactions between universities and the wider world, which result in economic and social benefit to the UK.

The funding will be used to develop our existing Corporate Governance (CG) at LSE initiative; our successful inter-disciplinary debate series committed to the promotion of evidence-based research in CG as an input for policy debates and decisions.

Like many policy makers, over the last few years the FMG has mainly concerned itself with addressing governance issues prevalent in the UK, Europe and the US. Now that the governance framework has improved dramatically, with the most pressing issues to the developed world having been addressed, we believe that the challenge is to now turn the debate global. We therefore plan to continue with our CG debate series but to adapt it in order to reach out and give a voice to stakeholders across the world. In the coming months we’ll be announcing our exciting new debate series line-up and explaining how you- wherever you are in the world- can be involved.

Corporate Governance at LSE is led by Prof Daniel Ferreira (Department of Finance and FMG), Prof David Kershaw (Department of Law and FMG), Dr Tom Kirchmaier (Manchester Business School and FMG), Sir Geoffrey Owen (FMG) and Edmund Schuster (Department of Law). The initiative is part of the FMG’s research programme in Corporate Finance and Governance, directed by Dr Daniel Paravisini (Department of Finance and FMG).
