First WINIR Symposium: The Nature and Governance of the Corporation
Datum: 22.04.2015 - 24.04.2015
Questions of corporate governance and corporate responsibility have been heightened by a number of corporate scandals and other events leading up to the financial crash of 2008. In the meantime, philosophers and lawyers have been questioning the very meaning of corporate agency and responsibility, while progress by economists in the theory of the firm is widely perceived to have slowed.
Bringing together internationally leading scholars from several disciplines, the First WINIR Symposium, organized with the assistance of the Brenno Galli Chair of Law and Economics and the support of the Fondazione Ricerca e Sviluppo of USI and the Fondo Galli, will address these problems, and forge a road ahead for future research and policy.
